New state site advises Nevada youth on job search

CARSON CITY, Nev. -- Nevada has launched a new website to help empower the state's youth in their job searches.

The site is available at http://www.NevadaYouth.org and includes tips on resumes, cover letters and interviews.

The site links to state-approved programs and organizations that assist young people in assessing their career interests and planning for their future. It also highlights job openings throughout the state.

Gov. Brian Sandoval says Nevada's future depends on preparing youth, and is encouraging parents and teens to explore the site's resources.

The site is a project of Nevada JobConnect and comes with the help of the Governor's Workforce Investment Board.
