LinkedIn & CV/Resume Workshop

On Tuesday, August 27th, the Mentoring Program hosted a Linked In & CV/Resume Workshop at St. George Orthodox Church with the blessing of Fr. Joseph Purpura, Pastor.  Mr. George Nimeh, speaker and small business owner, presented the keynote speech on the importance of the proper usage of social media for networking, job applications, and hiring.  He shared personal anecdotes on how using Linked In benefits his career and client network while he engaged the teens and young adults in considering their own career prospects.  The hour long presentation was followed by a hands-on workshop on developing an online CV for the contemporary workplace and job marketplace.  A homemade dinner and desert were prepared and served by Fr. Justin and Kh. Catherine Mitchell, so the youth were provided a nutritious meal while they were working together.  Following the event several teens and young adults stayed to plan and discuss upcoming  Mentor Program events, especially the upcoming academic tutoring beginning Saturday, October 5th and the Young Adult BBQ on Sunday, September 15th.
