Do you have a hard time traveling to Oakland, or do you just prefer to avoid it whenever possible? If so, you’ll be glad to know that the services of the Job & Career Education Center are coming to a branch near you! We’ll be visiting the following locations to present our Career Resource Workshops –
Your local branch probably offers its own workshops, too. For example…
East Liberty just hosted a “Resume and Cover Letter Boot Camp” class, put together by a partnership between CLP, the Bloomfield Garfield Corp. and Wireless Neighborhoods. If you missed this class, you can contact East Liberty or the JCEC to find out about similar opportunities.
Karen Litzinger, a frequent guest of the library, just presented a workshop at the Squirrel Hill branch called “Retire, Rewire, Renew: Explore and Plan For Your Future.” If you missed this event, Joseph P. D’Anna, a counselor at the Career Development Center, will be presenting “Learn Interviewing Techniques, How to Negotiate Offers and How to Transition Into a New Position” at Squirrel Hill on June 20. Call Squirrel Hill if you have any questions or would like to register.
There are also several sessions left in the eight-week Job Seeking Basics series at Woods Run. Contact them for more information.
And of course we’re planning more events and workshops all the time. Check with your local branch or the JCEC to see what’s currently being offered.
