Students to learn resume writing, interview skills at GHS Works

Beginning in April, the Goshen High School will implement a new program titled GHS Works. This initiative aims to help students develop important skills that will help them gain employment.

During this seminar, students will learn resume writing, interviewing skills and methods for seeking employment. During the seminar, students will be provided with a resume template and will learn how to personalize and create a professional-looking resume. They will also participate in mock interviews led by high school teachers.

Special guest Barbara Martinez, executive director of the Goshen Chamber of Commerce, will participate and give guidance to student participants.

“The high school strives to provide our students with the skills needed for college- and career-readiness, and this program will help them understand the nuances of seeking employment, whether it is for a part-time summer job or CEO of a Fortune 500 company,” said Assistant Principal Kyle Roddey. “The ability to craft a strong resume and successfully interview for employment will serve our students long into the future. We are excited to continue expanding our offerings and are always looking for new and innovative ways to prepare students for life after graduation.”

The first GHS Works after-school seminar will be held Wednesday, April 24, from 2:20-4 p.m. in the high school library. This program is open to students in grades 9-12. Registration is mandatory! Please register here to attend GHS Works.
