Upcoming Virtual Workshops

Tell Me About Yourself Workshop

The job search process is made up of a collection of places to tell the employer about your skills and experience. From the very first step, an application, to the first question at the interview, Tell me about yourself is your opportunity to explain why YOU are the best fit for the open position at that company. Even what you wear to the interview is a "tell" and your error-free resume tells about your attention to detail and computer skills! In this workshop, we will walk through all the steps and identify all the "tells."

Time: 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM

Soft Skills Showcase 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.
