Published 1:01 am, Wednesday, June 30, 2010
July brings a trio of jobseeker programs to the Westport Public Library that the community won't want to miss. All are free and open to the public, and will take place in the library's McManus Room.
On Wednesday, July 7, at 10 a.m., a Jobseeker Seminar entitled "Energize Your Job Search" will help participants gain the competitive edge by learning how to use valuable online tools like Reference USA, Lexis/Nexis and Business and Company Resource Center. Attendees will also learn how to spot industry trends and get in-depth background information about companies that will help them succeed in networking and interviewing.
Then, on Wednesday, July 28, at 7 p.m., there will be a Jobseeker Special on "Adapting Your Skills to a New Career." Ian Kennedy of the Schlegg Group will lead a discussion on how to identify tranferable skills to broaden job-search options.
In the Jobseeker Special on Thursday, July 29, at 10 a.m. -- "Orientation to Healthcare Careers -- Part I" -- Dierdre Johnson, health career advisor for Connecticut Community Colleges, will discuss the many programs in nursing and allied-health careers offered by Connecticut Community Colleges, from short-term certificate programs to associate degrees. Registration for the program is suggested. To do so, contact Margie Freilich-Den at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 203-291-4800. Part II of this program will take place at the library on Aug. 12.
