Prosum hosted a resume writing workshop for the Roosevelt High School’s STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Pathways and i.am College Track program. Over 20 students attended the workshop, undeterred by the prom festivities the night before!
Mentors from Prosum discussed possible career paths in STEAM and also shared their own stories. Together, they walked through resume and cover letter guidelines and discussed the dos and don’ts of presenting themselves on paper. From there, the students broke up into small groups for some one-on-one interaction with a mentor of their choice. Each student received a flash drive preloaded with interview tips, a sample resume and cover letter, and a “cheat sheet” to work through with their mentor.
Prosum mentors will be returning to Roosevelt High School in May to conduct an interview workshop to help students prepare for the next level in the job-seeking process, including a lesson on personal branding and social media.
[quote name="Eleni Tio, Human Resources" company="Prosum"]It is amazing to think that maybe we just helped prepare for the job market someone who will go on to invent something incredible in technology, or be part of something totally transformational for our society! These students just need to be made to feel that these opportunities exist for them and they can be a part of something that shapes the future.[/quote]
