Rye Youth Council Employment Service (RYCES) presented ‘Getting Hired 101 – Job Interview Workshop for Teens’ on January 24th to a packed room of 31 Rye High schoolers. This panel-based workshop provided professional guidance from community leaders Sally Rogul, Superintendent, Rye Recreation; Rich Savage, Director, Shenorock Shore Club Summer Camp and Osborn School teacher; Kathy Lynam, Camp, Family, and Teen Director, YMCA, and Liz Koenig, Assistant Director Aquatics/Safety, YMCA. RYCES Volunteer Laura Kovacs moderated the panel. Participating teens learned how to avoid the obvious – and not so obvious – mistakes in a job interview, as well as tips for nailing the interview: before, during and after.
