Personalized Assistance for people out of work, considering new employment or looking to improve your existing career: Our workshops have changed from classroom style instruction to personalized, interactive activities with our career coaches. You will be involved in exercises that will allow you to leave the workshop with personalized documents that will help you to achieve your career goals.
All Are Welcome – FREE of Charge: The Career Renewal Ministry is hosting job workshops on Thursdays to assist those in need of finding new work.
Two Tracks of Instruction: We offer an initial track for new job seekers that focus on “Basic Job Search Tools”, plus an intermediate track, “Job Acquisition Skills”, for those who have already created their resume and public profile. Sessions of each track are offered each Thursday evening.
Instruction Begins at 7:00 PM: Please join us for our Mixers/Networking and Workshops. Our schedule for the remainder of 2013 is as follows:
