NEWBURGH, N.Y. -
Robin Rosenberg, a career counselor at Mount Saint Mary College’s Center for Career and Experiential Education, gives résumé pointers to Newburgh Free Academy students in the high school’s Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) program.
Robin Rosenberg, a career counselor at Mount Saint Mary College’s Center for Career and Experiential Education, revealed valuable résumé writing tips to about 75 Newburgh Free Academy students on Wednesday, April 12.
Rosenberg joined forces with the Newburgh School District, Access: Supports for Living, and the Newburgh Armory Unity Center for the career workshop. It was attended by NFA students enrolled in the high school’s Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) program.
CNAs can help patients or clients with healthcare needs under the supervision of a registered nurse or a licensed practical nurse. Students who successfully complete the CNA program at NFA can obtain jobs out of high school, or continue on to nursing programs in colleges such as the Mount.
“The job skills we’re teaching these students today can help them obtain jobs as CNAs, and can help improve their job searching abilities for the rest of their lives,” explained Rosenberg. In addition, “We have a number of students who come to the Mount with that CNA credential who go into our Nursing program.”
The workshop, which was hosted by the Armory, was broken down into three sessions. In addition to Rosenberg’s résumé workshop, the NFA students enjoyed a LinkedIn workshop and mock interview opportunities.
