Are you a teen looking to take the leap into the exciting world of work?
At the Financial Academy we are committed to building young professionals and young leaders, helping them learn and develop real world skills that they can use for the rest of their lives. Our Teen Professionals program has been designed to help teenagers develop the skills required to tackle the exciting and sometimes intimidating process of entering the world of work. Participants will come away from this program with a finely-tuned, job-ready resume, and the skills, knowledge, and confidence to nail any interview. They will be taught and given feedback based on real experiences by our instructors who have worked in a wide variety of industries and have hired many youth. Our teenage professionals will come out of this program with a tool kit of skills and knowledge to separate them from their peers when applying for a job!
Part 1- Resume Building: We will work together to build a resume that will stand out to prospective employers. Participants will have a week to edit their resume and submit it for feedback from our instructors.
Part 2 – Interview Skills: Participants will be guided through everything to do with a job interview from preparation and research, to making a good first impression and how to answer questions.
Part 3 – Mock Interview: Participants will sign up for a “mock interview” with the instructor and another professional where they will be exposed to a full interview in a job or industry of their choosing. The instructor and professional will then give critical feedback. This will prepare them and give them the confidence for any upcoming interview they have
This program is recommended for youth age 13-18.
