Getting Back to Work workshop

On Wednesday, April 25th, at the Falmouth Memorial Library, I'll be presenting Getting Back to Work, a workshop designed for women and men who wish to re-enter the workforce after time spent out of the job market. My workshop will include tips on writing resumes and cover letters, interviewing, searching for work online, networking online and in person, and developing confidence to land your dream job. Anyone who is currently conducting a job search or contemplating starting one is invited to attend.

I used to critique resumes on a monthly basis at the library. As I met with people to discuss their resumes, I found that the majority of people who sought my advice were women returning to work after time spent raising children. Hearing their stories inspired me to create this workshop. With unemployment currently standing at about 8% in Maine, the competition for every new job posting is fierce. We all need to take advantage of as many practical tools and resources as we can to ensure job search success.

Detials: Getting Back to Work will be presented on Wednesday, April 25, 2012, from noon to 2:30 p.m. at the Falmouth Memorial Library, 5 Lunt Rd., Falmouth, Maine. For more information, contact the library at 781-2351 or leave a comment below.
