|The Chula Vista Public Library is offering two free basic computer classes and a series of career workshops to help start your path to employment.
The workshops will be held at the South Chula Vista Branch Library, located at 389 Orange Avenue, on three consecutive Tuesdays from 6-7:30 p.m. No pre-registration is necessary for the workshops. The schedule is as follows:
May 3, Job Skills: Have you ever wondered why some people seem to fall into work easily, getting the right job at the right time? Others, however, seem to take weeks, months and sometimes years. Learn what distinguishes successful job seekers in any economy. In this session, we will discuss both the inner and outer condition of the successful job seeker and how you can be more successful in your own job search.
May 10, Resumés: Interviewers, human resource staff and employers might look at hundreds of resumes a week. How can you get yours to the top of the pile? More importantly, what does a resume do and not do? And why is it crucial that you know this? Learn what will get your resume looked at for more than five seconds so yours can result in the next step. Free resume reviews are also included in this session.
May 17, Interviews: This may be the most important class you ever take. Proper application of the concepts provided will almost guarantee that job. Save time and energy and make money sooner by learning from someone who has never been out of work for more than two and a half weeks.
“Introduction to Computer Basics” will be held on two dates and registration is required as space is limited: Friday, May 6, from 9-10 a.m. at the South Chula Vista Branch Library, 389 Orange Avenue; and Saturday, May 14 from 12-1 p.m. at the Civic Center Library, 365 F Street.
All programs are free and open to the public. For more information, contact your local branch: Civic Center Branch at (619)-691-5069 or South Branch at (619) 585-5780.
