Partner Up is a program designed to help students navigate finding a good and stable job in their career field. The sessions were held for seniors and lasted roughly two hours. During these sessions Dawn Rice, HRIS Systems Manager at Nemacolin Woodlands, presented how to prepare to look and find a great job. She discussed personal strengths and values, correct appearance, resume building, etc. She discussed these topics over course of three sessions.
The seniors involved had the opportunity to participate in mock interviews. CJ Renzi and Ronica Rugg from Nemacolin Woodlands, Brianna McMeekin from PNC Bank, Melissa Gregg from Mountain Creek Properties, and Hannah Gifford from WVU Medicine Uniontown Hospital attended the mock interviews and evaluated the participating seniors.
Participating seniors included Allysen VanSickle, Reid Glisan, Michael Vinsick, Madison Glover, Gavin O’Brien, Sophia Friend, Gage Brugger, Elizabeth Franks, Kayla Miller, Devin Hager, Vincent Cossell, Courtney Frye, Hunter Chaikcic, and Queenation Jackson.
We would like to thank the participating businesses for making this possible.
