STUDENTS FROM THREE public secondary schools are being equipped with the necessary skills to prepare them for the world of work.

The topics covered included résumé writing, effective communication, business attire and conflict resolution.
On Thurdsay at Divi Southwinds Beach Resort, in Christ Church, 18 students from Ellerslie and six from Frederick Smith got the opportunity to learn about acceptable business practices and behaviour.
Facilitator of the programme, Sandra Griffith-Carrington, advised students on preparing for job interviews with interactive sessions on the subject. (SB)
