To help people in this effort, PeninsulaWorks and the Redwood City Public Library present the latest in a series of job-search and employment related workshops.

This is an exciting workshop for job seekers where they’ll have the opportunity to develop critical skills and gain crucial information needed for their job search. A key element is one-on-one assistance sessions, where knowledgeable coaches will provide feedback to the job seeker, with an emphasis on resume preparation and interview skills development. In addition, there will be experienced speakers offering career-related presentations, including a Human Resources Directors Forum – a great opportunity to get questions answered, and find out the best ways to get in the door and make the right impression with HR departments.
This FREE four-hour workshop provides participants with great tips, valuable information, and new skills that can help to unlock their job search and open new doors of employment opportunity. Space is limited, so interested job seekers are encouraged to arrive early to reserve a spot.
This workshop is presented by PeninsulaWorks and is co-sponsored by the Redwood City Public Library and the Friends of the Redwood City Library.
