Upcoming Virtual Workshops

Soft Skills Workshop

Soft skills are the behaviors of good employees, the courtesies that you were taught at school or by your family, and the key to success in any job – especially when you are the new person! The soft skills that are most valued by employers often reflect the company's mission statement and the industry. They are different from "hard" or technical skills, because employers do not expect to train you. Join us and list the soft skills you should be marketing on your cover letter, resume, and at the interview!

Date: Tuesday, June 22, 2021
Time: 10 AM – 11:30 AM
Location: Online via WebEx

Attendees will participate via internet access, and the ability to stream video and audio through your computer and/or phone is required to participate.

The Multi-generational Workplace Workshop

There are now six generations in the workplace, and each one has its special strengths and certain stereotypes. Starting with a discussion of historical events that helped form the perspectives and attitudes of each generation, we'll look at general characteristics – and focus on those characteristics in the workplace. The big take-away from this workshop is this: if you understand more about WHY that person thinks THAT WAY, you can reduce workplace conflicts based on misunderstandings, and be ready to learn from those youngsters and oldsters!

Date: Tuesday, June 22, 2021
Time: 1 PM – 2:30 PM
Location: Online via WebEx

Attendees will participate via internet access, and the ability to stream video and audio through your computer and/or phone is required to participate.

Transferable Skills Workshop

You have a toolbox, and you take it with you to every new job. In that box are your transferable skills, and your skillset includes both technical skills and "good employee/great team player" skills. Those skills were developed in school, in your home life, through hobbies, and at previous jobs. Let's make an inventory! Job seekers also need to assess the level of expertise for each skill – and analyze the job posting to figure out which tools and skills will be valuable to that employer for that position.

Date: Tuesday, June 29, 2021
Time: 10 AM – 11:30 AM
Location: Online via WebEx

Attendees will participate via internet access, and the ability to stream video and audio through your computer and/or phone is required to participate.

Finders Keepers Tips for Successful Onboarding Workshop

Every new job creates a new daily routine, a bunch of new colleagues, and often new challenges to your perspective on the right way to do that job. There may be policies that you forgot to research before you applied for the job, or work routines that you have trouble giving up. Let's identify common misbehaviors that can affect the employer's view of you and your skills. This workshop provides some eye-opening activities that can prepare you for the changes, and some tools for understanding or adapting to the changes.

Date: Tuesday, June 29, 2021
Time: 1 PM – 2:30 PM
Location: Online via WebEx

Attendees will participate via internet access, and the ability to stream video and audio through your computer and/or phone is required to participate.
