Workshop: Job-Hunting on the Internet
Past Event ....... April 30th, 2009 — 10:00 am
Thursday, April 30, 10 a.m. in the Library’s Compter Lab, “Using the Internet to Find a Job…In Any Economy,” a hands-on workshop presented by Jason Blais of JobsInME.com. Free, but advance registration requested: 513-3050.
â€œUsing the Internet to Find a Job…in Any Economyâ€ is the title of a free workshop to be held Thursday, April 30, at 10 a.m. at the Lewiston Public Library.
Facilitating the program will be Jason Blais, director of business development for JobsInME.com, the state’s leading recruitment resource. The goal of the hour-long seminar, according to Blais, is to help those in transition understand the concepts of using the Internet in their job search. â€œFor those who have not looked for work for many years,â€ he said, â€œwe have seen that a program such as this can provide a level of comfort and confidence in using online resources. For those who are already skilled at using the Internet, we will provide some very effective tips to help them be more successful in their search.â€
The workshop at the library will cover the first steps in beginning a job search, tips on how to create effective e-resumes, an overview of the growth of online job advertisements, ways to identify reputable online resources, and safety guidelines for job hunting on the Internet. Blais will also provide a review of the free resources that JobsInME offers to job seekers.
The hour-long program will take place in the LPL computer lab, located on the second floor of the library. Participants are invited to linger longer, if they like, in order to explore the JobsInME site, to practice their Internet navigation skills and/or to work on developing their resumes with the help of the library’s computer lab assistants.
The workshop will be limited to 15 participants so as to provide everyone with an individual computer work station. In order to guarantee a space, those interested in participating should call the LPL Reference Desk at 513-3135 to register in advance. Cosponsoring the program with the library is DEC, the Downtown Education Collaborative, which also coordinates the community computer labs at LPL, the B Street Center and Lewiston High School.
