Career Connections

Teachers from the Villa Rica and Temple clusters attended manufacturing day to learn more about high-tech, high-wage jobs in Carroll County. This tour is a wonderful opportunity for our teachers to experience high-tech, high-wage jobs in the manufacturing industry as well as hear from human resources managers regarding qualifications and soft skills needed to be employed in these important jobs.

TIPS for INTERVIEWS

1. Fill out paper applications neatly in ink

3. GO ALONE---If parents take you they should stay in the car

4. SMILE-firm handshake-ask to speak to the manager

5. Make sure to have appropriate emails, passwords and logins-the business can often see your password & if it should be very general like john123
