Dressing for Success

- preparing students for job interviews -

Thirty students from 3 Essex County high schools (Tecumseh Vista Academy, Essex DHS, Belle River DHS) will get some vital advice and assistance in landing a job on Friday, March 24th.

The students will begin their day at 9:00 a.m. at the Employment Assessment Centre in Essex (20 Talbot St.) where they will receive some advice and basic instruction in how to present themselves in a job interview. A pre-requisite for this opportunity is that the students have never previously had formal employment.

Following the sessions at the E.A.C. the students will be taken to Devonshire Mall (approximately 10:45 a.m.) and given a budget of $100 to purchase items they will need to improve their personal presentation in a job interview. The funding for this program comes from the Employment Assessment Centre through the Ontario Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training.
