East Hampton High School students have been busy networking with and learning job-oriented skills from professionals through the school's partnership with Career and Employment Options, a company focused on boosting opportunities for students of all learning levels, including those with disabilities.
In the Career Lab and Networking Club, students get help writing resumes, understanding self-advocacy, writing cover letters and thank-you notes, navigating interviews, learning etiquette for social media and virtual meetings, and more. Representatives from the Long Island Rail Road, National Grid, the Contract Pharmacal Corporation, and Apprenticeship and Connections Inc. are among the companies and organizations that have taken part.
"We are dedicated to providing resources and programming that empower East Hampton students to establish meaningful connections with industry professionals," Joelle Kronberg, C.E.O.'s marketing and partnership coordinator, said in a press release.
Businesses that are interested in taking part in the program can call 631-872-3171 or send an email to Lauren Terriaca at [email protected].
