Workforce Workshop 2014

The Mustang Youth Services Center partnered with the City of Paducah Parks & Recreation by providing a college & career development workshop for high school seniors entitled “Workforce WORTHshop:  Do You Have What It Takes?”  Seventy-five students were selected to participate in this half-day, interactive workshop which provided sessions on resume writing/interviewing skills, performance reviews/evaluation, conflict resolution, creating a healthy lifestyle, setting goals and leadership.  Presenters included:  Joni Goodman, KeeFORCE; Stacey Young, Baptist Health Paducah; Jim Dudley, KeeFORCE; Kent Bohanon, State Farm; Anisa Cox, Energy Fitness Paducah; and Michael Ceglinski, MCHS.  Each student who completed the entire workshop received a “Certificate of Completion” to be used when applying for jobs, scholarships and internships and a training experience of which they can include on their resumes.  Students were also provided with the opportunity to get help with filling out job applications as well as help with creating a working resume.  Thanks to our business partners and presenters for volunteering their time to help our students!   As a result, fifty-four seniors completed the workshop.
