Jan. 2019 Workshops for Job Hunters


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

On Tuesday, January 8, 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, January 10, Richard Prather from Texas Workforce Solutions will present “Up & Out: Job-Search Skills” from 1:30 to 3:30 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library. Prather will discuss will talk about accessing the “hidden” job market. Learn how to make effective phone calls and leverage social-media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to find jobs that are not advertised through traditional means. Reservations are NOT required for this program.

The programs are free and open to the public.
