- Helping students with summer jobs
During the program, that’s part of the newly launched "Go2Work Tampa Bay," students learned how to write resumes, practiced for interviews and searched for jobs.
The program is sponsored by several local businesses and twenty five companies and non-profits have signed on to hire students for five weeks this summer.
School officials said students’ summer jobs could lead to internships and long term employment.
"If students are prepared for the workforce then they’re going to be more successful than some of the other candidates who haven’t done this interview preparation," Chris Jargo with Hillsborough County Public Schools said.
"The skills they learn in their summer employment could be vital in obtaining their long term career," Jargo said.
There will be another program for student on May 3.
