Yahoo have begun their annual skills@work programme with the Transition Years. We are lucky to be matched with this computer giant by the Business in the Community Ireland, under their Schools Business Partnership.
This programme has been a great success in this school, in the past. We work closely with the Human Resource Department of Yahoo to provide this programme. We are delighted with the help and advise they provide to our transition Year students in the area of careers each year. Employees and managers from Yahoo provide students with a first hand insight into the diversity of employment roles within the company
The programme provides a company overview, site visit, 'A Day in the Life' talks, CV workshops, interview skill techniques, mock interviews, and many other sessions such as workplace etiquette, teamwork, etc.
The programme culminates in a presentation by the students, where they show the Yahoo team how much they have learned, and how they appreciate all the hard work done on their behalf.
