Gap grooms future staff with training

by on
in Office Communication

Gap plans to hire 1,200 workers from community colleges this year, and it’s preparing them for those jobs by training them while they’re in school. The clothing chain has partnered with Atlanta Technical College (ATC) in Gap for Community Colleges.

The program is part of the White House initiative “Skills for America’s Future.”

Gap has given ATC access to the same training curriculum Gap store managers receive. This is the first time the chain has offered the program to anyone other than its own employees.

The workshop material covers job-search preparation materials, including interview skills and résumé writing. Also covered: practical workplace skills such as managing people and setting priorities, as well as communication skills.

Students receive on-the-job experience with an opportunity to job-shadow a Gap manager in a store. Gap is offering $1,000 scholarships to 65 students—and inviting them to apply for jobs.
