Job Search Tips

The CCRC works with local businesses to support and advertise jobs for high school students. We update flyers weekly for students to apply to local job positions. It is important that all students have an entry-level resume and cover letter template prepared that accurately highlights their skills to potential employers.

The CCRC offers the following services to help support students to find jobs, internships, etc. that will help them take a step toward their professional goals.

RESUME WRITING
Students will learn how to create an entry-level resume. This resume assignment is a High School & Beyond graduation requirement and will be completed during sophomore English classes. Students will use their Career Cruising portfolio to create and store their resume.

COVER LETTER DEVELOPMENT
The CCRC can assist students with creating a Job Application Cover Letter. In addition, students can create a Cover Letter by using the Letter Generator Tool on the ReadWriteThink website.

JOB INTERVIEW TIPS
The CCRC staff will schedule a mock interview for any student who wants to practice interviewing for a position. This has helped many students acquire positions and feel more at ease during initial interviews. The following are quick links to helpful interview information:
