Summer Jobs+ is a call to action for businesses, non-profits, and government to work together to provide pathways to employment for young people in the summer of 2012. It's about helping people find their first jobs.
Today Rosye Cloud is the Director of Policy for Veterans, Wounded Warriors and Military Families at the White House. In the video below she talks about her first job as a doctor's assistant taught her how to deal with people as they cope with anxiety -- as well as how to manage an office environment.
So far, employers have listed more than 300,000 jobs, mentorships, and other employment opportunities this summer through Summer Jobs+.
