Beginning Tuesday, January 10 at 7 PM, the Summit Free Public Library will host a weekly series of workshops: “Your Job Search – A Fresh Start”. This series of informal workshops is for you if you currently have a job, or are under-employed or are ‘between positions.’ While its focus is on the professional level job-seeker with a minimum of five years’ work experience, it is open to everyone. Join us for one or all four of these two-hour sessions. In addition to the topics listed below, each session will provide ample time for discussion, networking, and interview role-play.
January 10 Session 1: The rules of the search
January 17 Session 2: Written communications
January 24 Session 3: ‘Tell me about yourself’ – Interviews and how to ace them
January 31 Session 4: ‘You want what???’ Navigating salary negotiations
