Gaining Work Experience
Having the right skills is an important part of getting a good job and may assist you in deciding about a career choice. One way of gaining these skills is by actually working. Workforce Solutions South Plains helps provide eligible young people with a wide variety of work experience opportunities. Work experience opportunities vary in a number of different ways including when and where the participating young people will work.
Work Experience is provided based on the availability of funding. As part of a comprehensive program, Workforce Solutions South Plains offers those Work Experience opportunities for eligible youth throughout the year.
Work experience opportunities are provided at both public sector (governmental entities, nonprofit organizations, schools, etc.) and private sector (for-profit companies) sites. Young people participating in work experience are assigned to supervisors specially trained to help teach them appropriate work habits and job skills.
