Students in Lynn Bond’s Career and Financial Management classes this week wrapped up a seven-session program aimed at giving them tools for career success.

Amina Puorro, a volunteer for Junior Achievement who works for Bryant and Stratton College, worked with the students on interviewing skills, resumes, building rapport, finding careers that fit their personality, best social media practices and the four Cs — creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration.

Each student received a certificate for completing the program.

Puorro said students are invited in their senior year to participate in Bryant and Stratton’s Jumpstart program through which students can receive free college credits. The course takes place on Saturdays over 15 weeks. Free transportation to the Albany campus is provided from Amsterdam. For information, call Puorro at 518-437-1802.
