Our expert presents to the students
One of the aims of the Cipanas Vocational Training Center is to help the older students, those in their last year of High School, to gain more employability. Besides making sure they have added skills to their CV, during every term, we organise 1 to 2 Job Seeking Skill Workshops. The aim of this activity is to prepare the students in getting a job in the future. The students learn how write an attractive curriculum vitae and prepare themselves for an interview. They learn directly from an expert, who are managers and can therefore easily explain what are a company’s needs and expectations.
In our latest workshop, we held a group discussion session and worked on a job interview simulation. The students were divided into groups and given a few questions that are frequently asked during the interview. They discussed which answer was the best according to their group and a representative presented their answer in front of the class. Next, a role-play was organised where the expert played the interviewer while some of the students played the interviewee. The whole class was able to learn how to perform well in an interview. Practice makes perfect!
This end of year, we would like your help with another of YUM's projects, a library and early childhood learning centre in West Java which is currently looking for donors to keep it alive. This award-winning project is up on GlobalGiving and you can view the project here.
