Job Search Survival Workshops Set for Feb. 2015
LEARN JOB-SEARCH SURVIVAL TIPS AT FIRST COLONY BRANCH LIBRARY
Have you been searching for a job and not having any luck? Maybe it’s time for a change in your game plan. Fort Bend County Libraries’ First Colony Branch Library will present a free, two-part workshop of “Job-Search Survival Tips,” beginning on Monday, February 9, from 5:30 to 8:30 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 2121 Austin Parkway in Sugar Land. The series will continue on February 10, at the same place and time. Different topics are discussed each night.
The two-part workshop is designed to help all job-hunters, from those applicants applying for a position at a fast-food restaurant to executives looking for a position in a large company. The tips that are presented can help any applicant plan a more efficient job hunt and make a more favorable impression.
Learn tips on writing a better resumé, researching prospective employers, interviewing and non-verbal skills, making a great first impression, networking, and much more. By developing an organized plan of action, the applicant is able to experience a more efficient job hunt with an increased chance of success.
In the series, a team of 10 professionals, with decades of experience in corporate America between them, will share their insight and the experiences they themselves have had in the business world – from the perspective of the employer doing the hiring as well as the employee looking for a job. The job-search survival team includes business owners, financial and mortgage advisors, computer consultants, sales and marketing professionals, and advertising and communications executives – all of whom volunteer their time for this workshop.
The sessions are free and open to the public. Registration is not required, and late arrivals are welcome. For more information, call the First Colony Branch Library at 281-238-2800 or the library system’s Public Information Office at 281-633-4734.
