Local young people looking to begin their working life will have their resume, interview and other employment questions answered at three upcoming workshops.
Hosted by JobLink Plus and Winanga-Li Aboriginal Child and Family Centre, the free workshops will teach them everything they need to know about gaining employment.
There will be three workshops for young people aged 16-20 years, which will be held over three days.
Resume skills will be covered in the first workshop on Wednesday, July 15, which will cover what to put in a resume and how to present it.
This will be followed by job applications on Wednesday, July 22, where attendees will be shown how to do an application online and how to complete all sections correctly.
The last workshop, on Wednesday, July 29, will be a "bit of fun" for attendees, according to JobLink Plus youth consultant Prue Jeffrey. It will focus on practice interview skills.
"We'll be giving everyone some jobs to apply for and show them how to dress for the jobs," Ms Jeffrey said.
"It's important that they learn the skills to give themselves the best opportunity to gain employment."
Ms Jeffrey said the aim of the workshops was for youngsters to learn how to put their best foot forward.
"When we meet an employer face-to-face, first impressions always count, as well as the resume," she told Australian Community Media.
Program coordinator for Winanga-Li, Sarah Sing, said the events would follow NSW government health guidelines in stopping the spread of COVID-19.
"We'll have a hand-sanitiser station, and will have everyone sign in and put their contact number down so if anyone does come down with flu-like symptoms we can contact everybody," Ms Sing said.
"Everything will also be cleaned thoroughly before and after."
Each workshop is free, has a provided lunch, and will run from 10am-12pm. They each have a maximum of 15 attendees, so locals are encouraged to book in as soon as possible.
They will be held at Red Chief Local Aboriginal Land Council on Chandos Street.
Transport can also be provided if prior arrangements are made.
