Week of September 29: Join us for two great workshops that go great together!

Preparing for the Job Search
Losing your job can be overwhelming and stressful. We’ll help you cope with your job loss and figure out your next steps! Topics include:

  • Dealing with feelings
  • 20 actions to consider taking in your job search
  • Networking: the most important action
  • Identifying and presenting your competitive advantages
  • How your time should be spent

This workshop will be held on Monday, September 29, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Using Social Media for Your Job Search
Did you know 94 percent of recruiters use, or plan to use, social media for recruiting? But only 36 percent of job-seekers are active on LinkedIn, 40 percent are active on Twitter and 83 percent are active on Facebook. During this presentation, you’ll learn how to get started on Twitter and get an overview of the key job-search features that are available on Twitter and Facebook. This workshop can save you a significant amount of time over learning it on your own, and you’ll leave knowing how to fully leverage these sites for your job search.

We’ll see you on Tuesday, September 30, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.!
