Choosing a career is not any easy undertaking. Likewise, once you’ve chosen a career, finding a job can be a pretty difficult task as well. When you consider that throughout your lifetime you spend more hours at your job than you do anywhere else, you really need to put the time and effort into making good decisions in regards to career selection and job searching. This is not only true for young people who are entering the job market for the first time, but also for adults who are either reentering the job market after an absence, looking for a new job, or are contemplating a career change. If you fall into any of these categories, then you should plan to attend the Birmingham Public Library’s Employment Readiness Bootcamp.
Two Employment Readiness Bootcamps will be held at the Central Library in April 2018. Each of the workshops will cover different parts of the job searching process, but participants are encouraged to attend both because the second workshop builds on the content presented in the first. Here are the descriptions of the workshops:
April 9, 2018 – Personal & Career Strength Test/Resume Rehabilitation
Personal & Career Strength Test provides an individual assessment of personal and professional goals, aspirations, and skills to help determine your best job fit.
Resume Rehabilitation is designed to assist individuals with creating an effective resume that will function as a powerful tool in achieving gainful employment.
April 23, 2018 – New Age Online Application Drill/Interview Performance Training
New Age Online Application Drill offers tips and suggestions to guide all job seekers in successfully completing online employment applications.
Interview Performance Training provides techniques to help you emphasize your skills, overcome objections, and build rapport with your job interviewer.
The bootcamp presenter is Tina Thornton. Tina is a professional counselor and founder of Gem Kreations, a nonprofit organization committed to assisting those who have experienced adverse circumstances realize their full personal and professional potential.
