[Camden County Library continues to offer help for those seeking a new job by offering a series of three workshops this winter at its branch across from the Voorhees Town Center on Laurel Rd.]

VOORHEES, NJ -- November 23, 2011 -- A resume often serves as the first “interview” with a potential employer.  And it’s a short interview according to the experts – on average employers spend only 10 seconds on each resume.  With only 10 seconds to convince an employer to offer an interview, a job seeker’s resume needs to stand out. 

This winter, the Voorhees branch of the Camden County Library System is offering three top-notch career workshops that will teach how to create a resume that highlights a job applicant’s strengths in an effective and professional manner. The workshops will stress how to customize a resume for each job, further improving chances of getting that interview.

Cover Letters, Resumes & Interviewing Workshop

Saturday, Dec. 3, 10:00 a.m. -12:30 p.m. Register here

Resumes & Networking Workshop --- A Hands-On Approach

Thursday, Jan. 12, 6 – 8 p.m. Register here
Thursday, Feb. 16, 6 – 8 p.m. Register here

The December workshop will explore cover-letter writing and interviewing skills in addition to resume writing. Remember, the resume can lead to an interview, but it’s a good interview that clinches the job.

The January and February workshops cover networking and resume writing.  Networking is the key to finding job openings, according to career experts. This workshop features one-on-one exercises where participants can pair up to critique resumes and practice their networking skills.

People with or without an existing resume are welcome to attend these workshops where they can revitalize their job search.

The M. Allen Vogelson Regional Branch Library is located at 203 Laurel Rd. across from the Voorhees Town Center.
