Stride, Inc., the nation’s leading provider of online and blended education programs, announced today the creation of a 4-part webinar series called My Career Connections, as a way for high school students nationwide to learn and apply for open opportunities with industry-leading hiring partners.
This live online series will put students in front of major organizations for a shot at over 50,000 potential opportunities that include internships, externships, actual entry-level jobs, and more.
Participating companies include Wayfair, CVS Health, Boeing, AG Careers, U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), and the U.S. State Department.
During each online event, students will not only learn about each organization, but they will hear directly from hiring managers and company representatives on how to search, apply, and interview for open opportunities, associated career paths in different fields, and have the chance to ask questions. Stride Success Coaches will also help prepare students during and after the events on how to prepare their resumes, interview successfully, and be a standout candidate for placement.
The first webinar will take place Jan 24th featuring Federal Job Opportunities with the US Office of Personnel Management (OPM), followed by CVS on Feb 24, with more to follow. To sign up for these events, visit this link.
“This is a great way for students around the country to learn about specific career paths in a variety of fields and apply for jobs while still in high school,” said Dr. Sherri Wilson, Director of Partnership Development and Career Pathways . “Our employer partners have a direct interest in building relationships with and hiring the next generation of the workforce and are excited to create opportunities and recruit GenZ talent.”
Event attendees will also receive several tool kits they can download from each session packed with more information about the hiring partners, additional tips for applying, and more free resources as they explore opportunities. And they will learn how to create a free online profile on Tallo, the nation’s premier online platform for connecting students with opportunities, to get automatically matched to future opportunities, employers, colleges, and other tools and content to prepare them for career-related opportunities.
All participants will be encouraged to create or enhance their Tallo profile to work and connect with employers, find open roles and learn about future events, as well as get expert advice on creating a standout resume, develop interviewing techniques, and more from Tallo’s own Career Coaches.
