April 25th, 2012 – Fused Solutions recently attended Gateways to Careers, hosted by Clarkson University. The event brings together local businesses, government and colleges for a career event to prepare local high school students for interviews. All together there was over 50 businesses and 1,100 students from 19 school districts in the area.
The event is hosted every year towards the end of the school year to prepare high school seniors for real life interview scenarios. The sit down interviews including resume critiquing and feedback from local businesses on the students interview results. Also, some students can express interest in positions with local companies. The interview critique included professionalism, dress attire, resume design and functionality as well as overall performance.
After the event was over they brought all of the businesses, government and local school superintendents together for lunch and a meeting to discuss the results and feedback for next year’s event. We are looking forward to attending again next year. We have already received a few resumes from interested students for internships and jobs. It is truly a great way to help the local community.
