Our JA Girl$ program recently partnered with Empowerment Resources to bring JA Career Success and JA It’s My Future to their Journey Into Womanhood program participants.

The young ladies visited Fidelity Investments on a Saturday to engage in the interactive lessons and ask questions to the ladies of Fidelity Investments. The women from Fidelity Investments served as inspiration to the young girls as they spoke about all things careers, personal brand and financial literacy.

The young ladies participated in topics including:

  • 4Cs: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity
  • Strong soft skills
  • Work priorities
  • STEM and other high-growth industries
  • Personal-brand and job-hunting tools—resumes, cover letters, interviews, and digital profiles

JA Career Success equips students with the knowledge required to get and keep a job in high-growth industries. Students explore the crucial workplace skills employers seek but often find lacking in young employees, and also learn about valuable tools to find that perfect job, including resumes, cover letters, and interviewing techniques.
