Workshops - Resume Writing, Job Interview Techniques - Union County College
A new year marks a new beginning for many in the employment sector, either in finding a position after a layoff or simply exploring new opportunities for career enhancement.
Whatever is your personal situation, Union County College will offer just the right instruction to become marketable in a highly competitive employment marketplace. During January, the College will present two, single-session workshops in resume writing and job interview techniques on Saturday mornings at the Cranford Campus.
Attendees may select to take one or both workshops, depending upon their needs. The courses are designed to assist those who want to advance in an existing career, those who have lost their jobs and wish to get back into the employment sector, and those who are beginning an entirely new career area. Recent college graduates are also welcome. The classes are presented in an interactive, participatory manner with ample opportunity to address individual concerns.
“Make Your Resume Work for You” will cover the rationale behind effective resume writing, getting into the dos and don’ts of the entire process. Various resume styles will be discussed as students review in-class sample. Participants will gain insight into preparing electronic resumes to be scanned into corporate databases, and also learn how to prepare a convincing cover letter to accompany the resume. This course will be presented from 10 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturday, January 21, 2012.
“Developing Confidence for the Job Interview” will provide attendees with solid information on how to prepare for an employment interview, thus gaining confidence in their ability to “ace” the interview and land a position. Participants will be presented with various types of trick questions that are often asked at interviews, questions that the applicant also should ask, negotiating for the salary, multiple interviews, internal interviews, body language, and closing the interview to their advantage. Participants will have the opportunity to practice and refine their responses to such questions through role playing in responding to potential interview questions. This course will be presented from 10 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturday, January 28, 2012.
