Young Barbadians will again receive valuable tips this summer which should greatly assist them as they prepare to enter the workforce.
The Productivity Council will host four workshops on Preparation for the World of Work for students of secondary and tertiary institutions, new entrants to the workplace and youth group members who are between the ages of 15 and 25.
The two-day training sessions will be held on July 15 and 16; July 22 and 23; July 29 and 30; and August 5 and 6 at The Productivity Council, 3rd Floor, Baobab Tower, Warrens, St. Michael, beginning at 9:00 a.m. each day.
Persons interested in participating should immediately call Roseann Morris at 626-9416.??Participants will learn about productivity, service excellence, work ethics and teamwork, as well as the importance of communication.
They will also be taught the do???s and don???ts of Curriculum Vitae and Cover-Letter Writing, and receive valuable job interview tips. Human resource practitioners will be on hand to interview the participants and identify their strengths and weaknesses to assist them in mastering the interview process.
Now in its seventh year, the programme???s objective is to help students transition smoothly from school to the work environment, and it has been tweaked to ensure the maximum benefits are received.
