What’s New in JCEC

A lot of exciting things are happening in the Job and Career Education Center.  First of all, our new Job Club starts Wednesday, August 31 at 6:00 PM.

What does it take to be successful in your job search? Many experts believe that being part of a group can help. Exchange ideas and offer support to other job seekers during this informal time of networking. As a Job Club member you can share employment experiences, advice and encouragement while participating in discussions and activities geared towards helping you achieve your career goals. The topic for our August Job Club will be skill and interest assessments. Register online, or call 412-622-3133.

Another program we’re about to launch is the Skills for Success Speaker Series, including presentations on career planning, writing a cover letter, and fine-tuning your resume.  The first one is on September 14th, and will help you choose the best career for your personality type.

The PC Center is also adding three new career classes to its schedule – Career Cruising, Online Job Searching, and Resume Tune-Up.   Check the class information page for calendars, descriptions, and handouts.

And the JCEC and Teen have collaborated on a SAT and College Prep Resources workshop, which will be held September 24th.  We’ll show you what free online and print materials you can find at the library, and how to use them.

Registration is required for all of these events.  Please visit the JCEC or call us at (412) 622 – 3133 to register or find out more.
