I was a guest speaker at Jobs for Youth’s Job Club on October 17th, 2012. I facilitated an engaging and informative discussion with the leaders of tomorrow on job search strategy. I also addressed social media and how it adversely affects job seekers in securing employment. I say with confidence the youth will be more conscious of what they post online. I would like to thank Jobs For Youth for delivering a great session. In this picture (from left to right): George Terzakis, Ashley Harrison, Christopher Watts, Rojene Avery and Keisha Heard.

Hey We caught up with Shannan Peelet, Our very own Career Services Coordinator and got some key incite on JFY.

Check it out!!!

Are there any more changes being made within JFY beyond the move?
Shannon: "Yes, we're looking at changes in direct services from call-ins to the assessment process.

Do you think the clients understand what it truly means to be a "Non-Profit" company?
Shannon: "No I think they view us as a profitable company with loads of cash. The extra money that we do receive is always reinstated into the company just not as much as the clients think."
