Avenues to Employment

Apparently my team’s New Year’s resolution did not include updating blogs! I’m afraid we’ve left this page in a sad state of affairs, but we have made an April resolution (Why not? Who says resolutions have to be in January? :) to get back on the Blog Bandwagon!

It is amazing how busy one can get, but it’s also amazing how much one can get done when they’re super busy!

Case in point. For those who watch the news you know I’m in Leadership York County this year. Back in September our class decided we wanted to focus on a project that would hopefully help put a dent in the county’s high unemployment problem.

So, Leadership York County (a program of the chambers of commerce of York County) partnered with the United Way of York County to host Avenues to Employment, a free job skills fair. That project is now at its most critical point -- and I'm in charge of Marketing! Needless to say, that's taken up more than a little bit of my time!

Here are the details and please spread the word. The fair will be held on Saturday, May 1 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.at Baxter Hood Center (452 S. Anderson Road in Rock Hill) and is open to the public.

Avenues to Employment will help job seekers improve their interview skills, how to 'dress to impress' for interviews, develop and improve resumes (be sure to bring your latest version), use the Internet to search for jobs, learn about business ownership and discover available education and training opportunities. The event is intended to help people improve skills that will lead to employment.

They say give a busy person something to do and it will get done. Well, give nearly 30 busy people something to do and it's truly remarkable what can be achieved.

Here's to hoping Avenues to Employment is a success! Please click the links below to find out more information about Avenues to Employment.

Celebrity Apprentice

I am a huge TV fan, which makes sense since I work in TV. I also love reality television because mainly I can escape for an hour or two. Working in TV News can be very stressful and sad so reality TV really doesn’t take a lot of effort.

I have many favorite shows, but I am hooked right now on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice. First of all I really like Donald Trump. When he is in the boardroom he will ask the type of hard and uncomfortable questions TV reporters often ask the people they are interviewing, so I like that he is doesn’t take it easy on these celebrities. Plus, man the dude gives away thousands and thousands of dollars to charities.

Second, I just love the concept of the show. We all work with folks who would be great project leaders and others we wish WE could fire! I have learned so much from watching this show in terms of how to get along with people from different backgrounds. I find it fascinating.

I really like the celebrities who are on the show this season. Cyndi Lauper, WOW!, she is something. I had to idea she was such a scatterbrain. I mean she is all over the place during challenges. It’s like dealing with a kid. But she is so talented and she does get the job done. Hey it makes for good TV.

If I had to pick which celebrity on the show I am more like it would probably be celebrity Chef Curtis Stone. He is laid back, fun, but he still knows when to work. It’s funny to be all nice and laid back he will throw someone under the bus if he has to.

I am excited because they are bringing back the original Apprentice concept for folks who have just lost their jobs because of the economy. I know I will be watching that show as well.
