Commissioner Arrington and WorkSource Fulton Kick Off Accelerated Youth Employment Initiative | Print |

Mandatory job readiness workshops will precede interviews with employers who are hiring

Teenagers seeking summer employment or job preparation training will get the opportunity for assistance beginning June 5 through June 16, 2017.   WorkSource Fulton will offer intensive Job Readiness preparation workshops June 5 through June 9 and employer interviews June 12-16.   The six-hour workshops will equip teens with information to help them succeed in the job market. This initiative is supported by WorkSource Fulton, Commissioner Marvin S. Arrington Jr., District 5 and the Fulton County Board of Commissioners to help rising freshmen through seniors to obtain summer employment.

Some of the confirmed employers include Waffle House, Wendy’s, Bojangles, Cracker Barrel, ABM (airport-related hiring), and Murray Security. Additional confirmations are expected.

Youth who want employment are required to attend a job readiness workshop, which will include resume writing, interview preparation,  and time management.   Those who complete the workshop will receive job interviews with hiring employers.
