The four-hour-long interactive "employment bootcamp" hosted by the library will feature speaker Jamie Beck, a former Career Counselor for the California State University system who has a Master’s Degree in Human Services with an emphasis in Social Systems and a concentration in Family and Work, according to a library announcement.
"Whether a person has been searching for a job for 2 weeks or 2 years, this workshop will provide imaginative ideas that will turn the job search process from reactive to proactive and put the job seeker in the driver’s seat for landing his/her dream career," the announcement states.
Among the things to be taught at the event are how not to become your "own worst enemy" and to find a job based on your passions and interests through "innovative search strategies." Resume writing tips and interview skills' ideas are also on tap.
The workshop will be held Sept. 17, from noon until 4 p.m. at the library's assembly room, 125 West Vine Street.
All career levels are encouraged to attend, "... anywhere from recent graduates to mid‐career changers as well as those who were laid off, downsized, or returning to a career after time away from the workforce."
