Hi Community Partners,
Between pride weekend, the upcoming 4th of July holiday and our successful Ghirardelli hiring event, we have lots to celebrate here at MatchBridge!
Ghirardelli is one of our amazing partners and last week they came into our offices to do a hiring event! Youth came dressed professionally with their resumes in hand and their interview answers prepared! Two managers did one on one interviews and drumroll please… 13 youth were hired! We couldn’t be more thrilled for these youth and we look forward to more successful hiring events in the future!
This week’s resume tip to the youth focused on formatting. Some common problems with youth resumes are that they are disorganized, too long and use multiple fonts. We emphasized the importance of your resume creating a great first impression and tips to make it easy. Below you will see the bullet points that we provided them!
ü Keep the layout simple
ü Use only one font
ü Be clear, concise & use bullet points
ü Aim for 1 page (max. 2)
ü Use a template– make sure all fields are completed with YOUR information
We appreciate all you do to partner with us in helping reach of goal of getting youth jobs this summer! Keep checking the www.sfsummerjobs.org website, as our employers are hiring all summer long.
We wish you a happy and safe holiday!
The MatchBridge Team
