Career Resources provides employment assistance for current students, former students and graduates of the Fort Worth ISD, ages 16-24. Our purpose is to assist candidates in developing:
- Awareness of personal responsibility for employment and a self-directed job search
- Essential job search techniques to identify their strong points, market themselves successfully and handle interviews with ease
- Positive personal presentation skills in appearance, communications, application completion, phone techniques and self-evaluation
- Awareness and understanding of networking and its importance as a job search technique
Staff members work collaboratively with teachers, counselors, and principals to provide students with various job search strategies and a broader vision of employment opportunities fostering a positive outlook on careers.
At our annual Hiring Fair, we connect job seekers with a large variety of potential employers who offer positions with opportunities for growth and advancement.
We work cooperatively with the business community, the education community at large, and others to achieve our mission.
