On Thursday, May 10 at 1:00 p.m. EDT Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis will host a Google+ Hangout to talk about the Obama Administration’s Summer Jobs+ initiative. Summer Jobs+ is a call to action for businesses, non-profits, and government to work together to provide pathways to employment for youth in the summer of 2012. To date, companies, non-profits and governments have committed to creating nearly 300,000 summer jobs, mentorships and other employment opportunities for young people this summer.
And last week, we launched the Summer Jobs+ Bank, a single-stop resource for young people looking for jobs, internships, mentorship programs and other opportunities this summer. Just enter your city and state in the search widget on the right to get started. Or check out some of these cool Summer Jobs+ apps to access this information via Facebook, your web browser or your smart phone. In addition to these online resources, the National Association of Workforce Boards is promoting more than 30 youth job fairs across the country on Thursday. |
