While looking for work can be an exciting time, it can also involve fear and discomfort about change and the unknown. Whether participants are already in the midst of a job search or just thinking about it, this one day workshop will help students get their job search started by determining what their skill set is made up of, the kind of work that is important and realistic to include in their search and more.
Today's job market is not the same as it was even five years ago. Knowing where to go, who to talk to, and the opportunities that are available will help to shift them from someone who dreams about having a job, to someone who has the job they always wanted.
With Job Serach Training Materials participants will learn:
- How to assess their skills, values, and beliefs about work and looking for opportunities
- Develop an understanding for the types of work available to them and where to find more information
- Recognize the differences and benefits available through career coaches, counselors, and mentors
- Learn different approaches to job searching, such as networking and tapping into the job market
