High school students from the Syracuse City School District and Liverpool Central School District recently participated in a Junior Achievement Workplace Skills Challenge at Onondaga Community College.
"JA You’re Hired!" was a great opportunity for students to practice interpersonal and communication skills as they interacted with business mentors from Carrier. In addition, student workshops presented opportunities to learn more about social media, personal finance and personal branding. These activities also allowed the students to demonstrate to possible future employers that they have what it takes to get and keep a job.
“Carrier employees truly enjoy the opportunity to share real-world experiences and inspire these students to succeed in the workforce,” said Lou Anne Mann, senior community affairs representative, Carrier. “Carrier and UTC have been longtime supporters of Junior Achievement’s dedication to educating students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship, financial literacy and experiential hands-on programs.”
