Session One: Larry Robbin: The Secrets to Turning Virtual Interviews into Job Offers for Youth!  1:00 - 2:15 EST

If you are teaching youth how to interview the same way you did before interviews went virtual you are seriously out of date and keeping youth from getting job offers!  Virtual interviews not only changed interviews to being online, they also changed how employers make the hiring decision.  This innovative training is based on the real feedback from employers about what they don’t like about how youth give virtual interviews.  This candid inside view of what goes through an employer’s mind in a virtual interview will open your eyes to why more of your youth are not getting hired.  Learn what employers think about video backgrounds, youth body language, how youth talk to the screen, what youth wear and what youth say that influences their hiring decisions.  If you want to learn the secrets to turning virtual interviews into job offers for your youth, register now and don’t miss this webinar!

Session Two: Edward DeJesus: Social Capital for Student Success  2:30 - 3:45

You are working hard to help others find a job or you are trying to find one yourself. You are frustrated by the number of applications that you had to submit and the no callbacks that you had to endure. You spend your time and your energy using the best job hunt strategies and you attend networking events like the best of them, but are you doing everything you can for your own professional and personal growth? In this two-hour course, participants will learn basics of social captial literacy and how it differs greatly from networking. You can’t find the opportunities that you didn’t know exist! In this training, you can significantly increase the chances of gainful employment and success for yourself as well as those you serve.
