SRPMIC Hosts Job and Résumé Workshop for Community Youth

By

“Welcome to our first youth summer job and résumé workshop for this year,” said Julie Sepulveda, Career Services Coordinator from the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community Human Resources Department, on May 30 as she kicked off the Community’s job and résumé workshop.

The workshop was held in Two Waters Building A in the computer lab. Sepulveda was joined by her Human Resources colleagues Seneca Peters, employment compliance coordinator, and Zandria Ransom, special needs coordinator. Together, the trio helped a group of young adult Community members learn the ins and outs of creating their own résumés and applying for jobs for the first time.

“We’re here to assist; you can take as much time as you need,” said Sepulveda. “There’s no rush; we can work with you,” she added.

Sepulveda explained that Goodwill, Walmart and Target are just a few of the organizations located in the Scottsdale Pavilions that are currently looking to bring on new talent.

Additionally, the HR trio assisted with the process of completing a job application online. “We can help you with the online application questionnaires and are here to answer questions you may have about the process,” she said.

Sepulveda, Peters and Ransom answered questions regarding the process of creating a résumé and cover letter. During the workshop, attendees disclosed their work histories and some informed the class that they were looking to join the workforce for the very first time after several years of babysitting.

Creating a professional résumé and cover letter places a prospective employee at the front of the line to receive an interview or a job offer. Throughout the summer, SRPMIC’s Human Resources Department will be hosting additional workshops for those seeking employment.
