Tennessee Career Center offers job-skills workshop

Saturday, January 19, 2013

On Wednesday, Jan. 30, the Tennessee Career Center at Dyersburg is offering a "Steps to Getting Hired" workshop from 1--3 p.m. The workshop will assist jobseekers with filling out an application, writing a resume, interviewing tips and networking. The workshop is being delivered by Career Center Coordinator Mike Whitson.

This comprehensive job-search workshop will teach jobseekers how to properly complete a job application and develop a competitive resume leading to a greater likelihood of securing an interview. Workshop participants will also learn new techniques and tips to stand out in the crowd and will also develop a network action plan. The workshop can be counted as a valid work-search activity under the new Unemployment Insurance Accountability Act of 2012 for all claimants receiving Tennessee Unemployment Compensation.

Space is limited. Register for the workshop by contacting the Career Center at 731-286-8300 or whitson@nwtnworks.org.

A member of the American Job Center network, Tennessee has Career Centers across the state where employers can go to find workers they need and job seekers can get career information and services. Each center offers computerized labor market information, Internet access, workshops, an online talent bank, job placement, recruitment and training. Job seekers can qualify for federally funded training programs.
