Job seekers only have 10 seconds to make a good first impression, according to a recent study hosted by Oregon State University.

With that in mind, Boca Raton-based NCCI, the nation’s largest repository of workers compensation information, recently hosted an interactive learning program for the Pace Center for Girls in Broward.

mentoringNCCI employees mentored, educated and engaged the teens in six different activities designed to help the girls speak and dress for an interview, and solve challenges through teamwork. In another activity, Career Spin, the girls met with representatives from eight different NCCI departments to better understand the training needed for those positions. They also learned about making healthy food choices — even in the workplace.

More than 30 NCCI employee volunteers gave building tours, presentations or served as mentors for the day. Earlier this summer NCCI collected more than 400 articles of new or near-new business clothing and accessories for PACE Center’s Career Gear Closet.
