Schools That Can Newark was featured in Tap Into Newark for the Bridging the Education to Employment (e2e) Gap Program, which connects students to externships across different careers and guides them through the hiring process. That includes one-on-one help with resumes and cover letters and workshops to help students envision their post-secondary pathways, and connect them with employers. Read all about it, including some incredible student stories, here!
“There can sometimes be a real disconnect between our youth and some of the employers who work here. Students look at the workers downtown, passing between various office towers and wonder what all goes on in those companies. They might not see themselves as being potential employees there or might think these jobs are only for people from out-of-town.”
