Through PIC's Job Readiness Training Course, Career Specialists will equip students with the skills they need to secure a meaningful job. Topics covered during the course will include: career exploration, resume writing, professional communication, interview preparation, and email etiquette. In this course, students will be exposed to various PIC-partner industries (IT, Healthcare, Finance, Real Estate, Architecture, Life Sciences), create or edit their resumes, practice interviewing, learn to craft a professional email, and learn about workplace culture. Students with engaged attendance throughout the four-day course will be "PIC Certified Private Sector Ready" and will be prioritized to interview for PIC remote paid summer jobs opportunities.
