Building Confidence & Knowing your Strengths: 

This career assessment workshop is a starting point to focus your career choice and job search. By using self-assessments, you’ll better understand your strengths, skills, values and interests, so you can clearly present them to employers.  Additionally, you will receive tools to build your confidence, which is important for a successful transition to a new career or job.

Career Exploration:

Building on the previous workshop, this class will provide you with tools and resources to identify and gather key information about local career and job opportunities that best fit your skills, interests, values and needs. Additionally, you will learn how to organize and stay motivated throughout your career search.

Resumes 101:

Your resume is your marketing tool - it gives potential employers a first impression, or snapshot, of your skills and accomplishments, and reflects how you can contribute to a job or organization. In this workshop you’ll learn how to create and tailor your resume for the job you want. If you have a resume, bring it with you, if not, you will leave the workshop with the start of an outstanding resume.

Networking for Success:

Most people find employment by tapping into their network and actively developing new contacts.  Connection (networking) = Success.  In this interactive workshop, learn about a variety of networking opportunities and come to understand how networking can effectively increase your access to the hidden job market and improve your employment prospects.  

Salary Negotiation & the Job Offer: 

Having realistic salary expectations and understanding your earnings potential is key.  This workshop will demystify the job offer and salary negotiation process.  You’ll feel more confident negotiating salary in a positive and comfortable way and increase your chances to receive your worth in a win-win with your future employer. Plus, discover what is negotiable besides money. Finally, you’ll learn about online salary surveys to help you research the “going rate” for your occupation or career goal.
