PALMDALE – Youths ages 15 through 18 who are interested in developing the skills needed to successfully interview for a job are invited to register for the City of Palmdale’s upcoming session of the “Palmdale Works! Job Academy” beginning Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013 at the Larry Chimbole Cultural Center, 38550 Sierra Highway in Palmdale.

The three-week course will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from Feb. 12 to Feb. 28, from 3:30 to 5:30 pm.
During the course of the program, Academy students will be taught how to dress and prepare for a job interview, as well as meeting employers from local businesses and role-playing in mock interviews. Participants must attend each session to graduate.
