Learn Job Search Survival Tips Feb. 6 & 7, 2018
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 series of “Job-Search Survival Tips,” beginning on Tuesday, February 6, 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 Wednesday, February 7, at the same place and time. Different topics are discussed each night.
The two-part series 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 8 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 and a mixture of retired and working professionals – all of whom volunteer their time for this workshop.
The sessions are free and open to the public. To register online at the library’s website (www.fortbend.lib.tx.us), click on “Events,” select “First Colony Branch Library,” and find the program. Participants may also register by calling the library at 281-238-2800, or by visiting the library.
