Seminars Help Job Seekers Gain a Competitive Edge

Published on: October 29, 2012

Lone Star College-Tomball Community Library and Workforce Solutions are presenting two free seminars designed to give job-seekers a competitive edge in today’s competitive job market.

“Creating a Resume/Completing the Application” (November 7, 1:00- 3:00 p.m.) is a two-hour seminar on how to best present yourself on paper to potential employers.  Preparation, identifying skills and experience, matching them to the job, and presenting them in a compelling manner are just some of the topics to be discussed.

“Using the Internet” (November 21, 1:00-3:00 p.m.) is a two-hour seminar on how to harness the power of the Internet.  Researching job markets, using job boards and looking up potential employers are just some of the topics to be discussed.

Both seminars will be held in the Lone Star College-Tomball Community Library (Room L-207) and followed by one-hour resume labs (3:00-4:00 p.m.).  Lab participants will need their library cards to log in to the computers (for those without a card, a temporary card can be issued) and a jump/flash drive to save their resumes.  LSC-Tomball is located at 3055 Tomball Parkway, at the intersection of State Highway 249 and Zion Road.
