I have friends that ask me how I always get jobs during the summer. I always say, ‘It was TeenQuest,’ and stress the importance of the program.
(In TeenQuest) I remember being taught interview techniques and how proper attire was an essential part in making a great first impression to stand out from the crowd. There were small group exercises focusing on team building and leadership skills, which was a great help. What’s stuck with me most was the focus on soft skills, like problem solving and time management.
TeenQuest helped me learn how to express myself in a professional way. Those lessons helped me when I was interviewing… I was able to demonstrate my passion with dignity and respect.
Training covers core employment competencies that every employer looks for in an employee. These skills can help you succeed at work, school and in life.
