This is an interactive lecture style workshop where we will teach you all the ins and outs of how to make a resume.

Resume2 (Resume Lab)

After completing Resume1 job seekers may sign up for Resume2. This workshop allows the jobseeker to apply their knowledge of resume creation. In this workshop job seekers will create an actual resume on a computer with instructor guidance. Prerequisite: Resume 1

Interviewing

An interactive and lively discussion on the basics of interviewing: preparation, behavioral/tough questions, and follow-up. We will learn more about the intricate dynamics of interviews, including how to dress, how to answer difficult questions and what every jobseeker should do at an interview. In this workshop we will practice using effective interviewing techniques and host mini-mock interviews.

Transferable Skills

Learn how to use current skills to explore other career options, write a resume or talk about yourself during interviews. We will use evaluation forms, internet sites and interactive class assignments to discover skills necessary in the workplace today.

Job Applications

The key to landing an interview is how the job application is completed. The key to successfully completing an application is not only in what information is written down, but also in what information is not. Learn the techniques of selling yourself in the job application.
