April 10 – Resume Writing – Job searching is extremely competitive. However, presenting a professional resume can help the applicant stand out from competitors. An effective resume can be a tool to landing a dream job, but, because recruiters spend only six seconds reviewing each resume, it needs to grab the prospective employer’s attention immediately. During this fun and interactive workshop,  participants will learn how to craft a resume that will impress recruiters and hiring managers. Topics will include formatting, keywords, best practices, and how to tailor a resume for a particular job followed by advice on crafting a cover letter to complete the resume package.

Participants are encouraged to bring a copy of their current resume, either on paper or a mobile device so they will be able to make changes and start using the tips being taught.

May 8 – LinkedIn – LinkedIn is a valuable tool for career development and business expansion. Join Samantha Williams as she instructs users on how to make the most of this social media platform with 500 million global users.
