Teen job search 101 in Nelson

Pounding the pavement is one strategy for job searching, but for youth looking for an edge

Pounding the pavement is one strategy for job searching, but for youth looking for an edge, Nelson Youth Employment  Centre and the Nelson Public Library have teamed up to provide some strategies. NYEC counsellor Jonny Salerno offers expertise and answers questions for teens aged 15 to 18 on Wednesday, May 22 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Nelson Public Library. Refreshments will be provided.

Teen Job Search 101 aims to answer such burning questions as: Where are the jobs? How can I sharpen up my resume? What goes in a cover letter? And the happy question: Help! How do I prepare for an interview?

“In a small town it can be hard to find a summer job,” says Nelson Library Teen Services Coordinator Joanne Harris. “By teaming up, the Library and Youth Employment Centre hope to give teens the skills to make it easier.”

Space is limited, so teens are asked to contact Harris to reserve a spot at 250-505-5683 or jharris@nelson.ca by May 17.
