Albany - Many people now entering the workforce lack work ethics according to a new study by Albany colleges. More than 300 college bound high school students from Dougherty, Lee, and Terrell counties attended a Youth Workforce Conference at Albany State Monday.

The students learned lessons from how to ace an interview to what employers expect from employees. The Department of Labor decided to host the conference after hearing results of the study by ASU, Albany Tech and Darton.

"What they heard from local employers is that work ethics is something that's really missing in the workforce, especially among new entrance in the workforce. So what we're trying to do is to try and help the students understand what employer expectations are and what it takes to really be successful in the workforce today," said Career Center Manager Norman Race."

The students also learned how to prepare a good resume and what programs ASU offers for new students.
