Resume Writing and How to Dress for Interviews Among Topics to Be Discussed in Job Searching Seminar at Inglenook Library, November 6
Do you want to brush up on your job searching skills, have your resume reviewed for free, and shop for interview clothes in the same place? Well, on November 6 at 9:30 a.m., the Inglenook Library will be hosting a job seminar which will be conducted by representatives of the Department of Human Resources (DHR) JOBS Program. They’ll present job searching skills and techniques ranging from resume writing to interviewing skills. At the end of the program, the representatives will also review resumes and provide tips and/or corrections that will maximize your resume viewing potential. My Sister's Closet, a partner of the YWCA, will also accompany representatives of the DHR JOBS Program to showcase appropriate interview clothing and to sell them at a minimum cost.
Additionally, the Inglenook Library has a plethora of books for you to further your research in leading an effective and productive job search. Check them out below.
