State Senator Jack Martins and Nassau County Community College are sponsoring a “Job Resource Workshop” on September 17th at the Elmont Public Library Theatre to assist job seekers and those entering or re-entering the workforce. The workshop and networking event is free and open to the public.
Registration begins at 9:30am, workshops proceed at 10am and complete at 1pm. A job resource networking social for participants will take place at the conclusion of the workshop.
“My goal is to help job seekers develop the necessary skills to give them that edge when they are applying for a job,” said Senator Martins adding, “having that edge is critical when competing for a job in these challenging economic times. I’m happy to have been able to put this workshop together to meet a community need.”
The workshop will focus on writing an effective resume, identifying job opportunities, interview strategies, networking, dress for success and an expert panel of employers to answer questions. Those job seekers that already have a resume, and would like it critiqued, are invited to have a job expert look it over.
Break out sessions at the workshop will focus on each skill area. The goal is to give participants the opportunity to ask questions, assist them in developing a resume, critique and participate in mock-interviews.
Different aspects of the workshop will focus on target audiences. For High School and College students: activity sheet development, a first resume and identifying part-time and full time jobs will be a prime focus. For job seekers changing careers: resume building and interview strategies will be explored. For job seekers just entering the workforce: basic interview skills, resume critique and networking strategies will be examined.
