CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion offering live workshops via Zoom platform

CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion will resume live employability workshops beginning Monday, Jan. 11 with Job Specific Resume Development.

The workshops are free and take place via Zoom. Workshop descriptions and online registration links are available at careersourceclm.com/calendar/

“We’re pleased to provide this alternative to in-person workshops for those who prefer a live experience,” said Jerry Flanders, CareerSource CLM’s workshop coordinator. “And because we’re using the Zoom platform, space is not limited to first-come-first-served.”

The following live workshops take place each Monday and Friday, except when otherwise specified (such as holiday closures):

  • Job Specific Resume Development: Monday, Jan. 11 and 25 from 10-11 a.m. Forget the one-size-fits-all generic resume. Workshop participants will discover how to showcase job-specific skills and qualifications, as well as learn how to tap into electronic resources that can help job seekers land that all-important interview.
  • Interview Strategies That Get You Noticed: Friday, Jan. 15, 22 and 29 from 10-11 a.m. This workshop arms candidates with tips that can help them stand out from the competition and be remembered. It covers strategies for responding to the “tell me about yourself” question, preparing for behavioral interview questions and being ready with their own questions at the end of the interview.

Flanders noted that additional live Zoom workshops will be available in the near future. He added that job candidates may also take advantage of the free virtual (pre-recorded) self-paced workshops, which can likewise be found on the CareerSource CLM’s online calendar.

All workshop attendees are invited to team up with career coaches who can provide additional assistance and job referrals. Fee-free staff-assisted services may meet certain requirements for those submitting claims for unemployment compensation.
