Throughout the year, Career Services presents a variety of workshops that are designed to provide job seekers with the knowledge and skills necessary to compete effectively for employment offers. The dates and times for these workshops are posted on our Career Services Calendar . A listing of workshop subjects with brief descriptions of each are given below:
Well-written resumes open the doors to interview opportunities. They are generally used by employers to determine which candidates will be invited for a job interview and which will be screened out. Not only does the candidate need to have the knowledge, skills, and experience required for the job, but he/she also needs to convey those qualifications on their resume in a way that is clear, concise, and easy to read with a professional look. This workshop teaches you how to use a resume, which type of resume is right for you, what content to include in the resume, how the content should be arranged, how to write a cover letter and how to submit an application. Those who attend will also learn what a scannable resume is, how to write one, and when to use it. Even if you have already written your resume, you can benefit from this workshop…especially if you are having trouble landing an interview.
The job interview is the primary tool used by most employers to determine which candidate(s) to offer a job to. This workshop shows you how to prepare for an interview, how to make a positive first impression, how to conduct yourself during the interview, and how to follow up after the interview. Examples of common and behavorial based interview questions will be shared as well as tips on what not to do in an interview.
Attendees will have the opportunity to participate and be filmed (optional) in a simulated interview. Participants will receive immediate and professional feedback on their job interviewing skills and presentation style. Participants must sign up by calling Career Services at (909) 274-4510.
