A particularly powerful piece of the new campaign is a series titled 7 Second Resumes, in which Opportunity Youth spend seven seconds—the average amount of time a hiring manager spends reviewing a resume—describing their unique attributes that add to their value as employees. The qualities and skills that these young people have acquired throughout their life journeys cannot be itemized on a resume, but are often the very core competencies that employers look for in their employees.
Also, Grads for Life has published an impact report detailing the success the Grads of Life campaign has seen thus far. With your support and partnership, we look forward to continuing to expand our reach and in the coming months, we plan to be in touch more frequently with updates on what Grads of Life is doing and how you can participate.
