Volunteers Needed for Career Smarts 


Career Smarts is a semiannual event hosted by LWHRA and Seattle Jobs Initiative (SJI). SJI connects human resources professionals with community college students, ready to make their next big career move.
The event consists of four 30-minute "power" sessions. Suggested topics for power sessions include:
  • Interviewing skills
  • Networking skills and informational interviews
  • Job benefits and compensation benefits
  • Financial literacy
  • Applications
  • One-on-one advising
Students will rotate between sessions based on their interests and needs. Those students who attend all four sessions can enter their name into a drawing for a prize at the end of the event.
