Youths learn skills to help with job search


Ten students have graduated from Project Wok, a pilot programme run by Kina Bank in partnership with Project Yumi, a non-government organisation.
The students were trained by staff of Kina Bank for two months.
They learned to write an application and resume, how to approach an interview and how to manage personal finance.
This is the first phase of the programme.
The second phase is a 12-week internship with Kina Bank and other organisations.
Kina Bank chief executive Greg Pawson said the programme helped youths who no chance of going to university to find work.
Project Yumi director Renee Mero said they wanted to show the capabilities of PNG youth.
She said Kina Bank shared the same ideas as Project Yumi, which led to the programme starting.
