For Immediate ReleaseRedwood City Police and Sequoia High School Team Up for Career Seminar
Redwood City, CA - May 15, 2003 - Sequoia High School and the Redwood City Police Department will host a career seminar on Thursday, May 29, 2003, at Sequoia High School. The purpose of the seminar is to introduce Redwood City area employers to students interested in seeking employment when the current academic year ends next month, and to provide job-hunting tips to the students. The seminars are scheduled for 8:00 am, 9:55 am, and 12:25 pm.
The program is free to local businesses and Sequoia Union High School District students. "We have invited several merchants and businesses to participate in this event," said Detective Ray Fowler. "It's a very special community outreach opportunity for local companies looking for highly motivated prospective employees." Full-time, part-time, and summer job leads will be made available to students attending an instructional session focusing on job-hunting tips.
The program is divided into two segments: a discussion session focusing on how to conduct a job search, and presentations by local employers. Discussion topics will include where to look for a job, how to write a resume, and what to expect in a job interview. Companies that have expressed an interest in the project already include Erick's Deli Café, Wherehouse Music, Target, Costco, and the Pacific Athletic Club.
The Redwood City Police Department is committed to helping young people make good choices in life. Making decisions about how and when to enter the working world is much easier when you have a chance to meet with business and community leaders, and the department is happy to help facilitate this effort.
Sequoia High School students should contact Work Experience Coordinator Christle Waters on campus to sign-up for the seminar. Business owners and managers interested in learning how they can participate or have their company represented at the seminar should contact Detective Ray Fowler at 650-780-7138.
