Online Support Group for Job Hunters May 25th

Searching for a job can be difficult and stressful, but doing it in the middle of a pandemic can be even worse. Fort Bend County Libraries (FBCL) will host an online Job-Search Support Group on Tuesday, May 25, at 2:00 pm. This program will be live-streamed via Webex; it will NOT be in person.

In this online forum, job hunters will have an opportunity to network with other people, exchange tips and leads, or simply vent their frustrations with others in the same position.

Library staff will share helpful online resources that can be accessed through the FBCL website. These free resources can help job seekers create a better resumé, improve their job skills, research job opportunities and careers, and much more.

This online event is free and open to the public. Reservations are required so that a link to the Webex session can be emailed to all participants. To register online at FBCL’s website (www.fortbend.lib.tx.us), click on “Classes & Events,” select “Virtual Programs,” and find the program.

For more information, call FBCL’s Communications Office at 281-633-4734.

Are Your References Preventing You From Getting the Job Offer?

Do any of these scenarios sound familiar in your quest for a new job?

  1. Is your past boss badmouthing you?
  2. Interviewing well but not getting the job? 50% of companies DO NOT honor corporate policy regarding references.
  3. Were you a victim of discrimination, sexual harassment or wrongful termination?
  4. Are you being BLACKBALLED?
  5. Are you protected by your old company’s policy to only confirm the dates and title of employment?
  6. Do you have a separation agreement with your past employer? Is it being honored?

    You’ve put time and effort into your resume, developed your network of possible employers and recruiters, worked on your interview skills – but have you done anything about your references? Don’t leave this crucial area to chance. References are the final factor in who gets the job offer. Your past employers – anyone you reported to will be contacted.
