Workshops for Job Hunters Oct. 9 & 11, 2018

Are you looking for a job or considering a career change? You can pound the pavement with all the other job-hunters, or you can begin your search with a little preliminary legwork at the library.

In October, Fort Bend County Libraries’ George Memorial Library in Richmond will present two workshops that will provide assistance for job-hunters.

On Tuesday, October 9, the library will have a “Resume-Writing Workshop” beginning at 2:00 pm, in the Computer Lab of the library. Learn the basics of putting together a resumé. Those attending this informal program will receive one-one-one help formatting a resumé. For assistance on a pre-existing resumé, please have a digital copy available on a USB flashdrive, saved to the cloud, or have access to it via email. Registration is required.

On Thursday, October 11, Richard Prather from Texas Workforce Solutions will present “Beating Long-Term Unemployment” beginning at 1:30 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library. Prather will discuss factors that may contribute to an extended period of unemployment. Get tips on how to develop a job-search plan that will improve chances of finding the right job. Reservations are NOT required for this program.

The programs are free and open to the public. For more information, or to register for the Resume-Writing workshop, call George Memorial Library at 281-342-4455, or sign up on the library’s website (, by clicking on “Events,” selecting “George Memorial Library,” and finding the program.
