Library Seminar Helps Job-Seekers Reinvent Themselves

Published on: April 11, 2013

Lone Star College-Tomball Community Library and Workforce Solutions are presenting a free seminar designed to help job-seekers rethink their profession and repackage their professional skill set to become more competitive in the job market.

“Rebranding Your Skills” (May 1, 1:00- 3:00 p.m.) is a two-hour seminar on how to evaluate employment goals, match skills with potential employers’ needs, and target market those skills.  Determining job objectives, identifying basic skill sets, and tailoring a presentation accordingly are just a few of the topics to be discussed.

The seminar will be held in the Lone Star College-Tomball Community Library  (Room L-256) and followed by a one-hour resume lab (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 (or the resumes can be sent to a personal e-mail account if a jump drive is not available).  For more information or to register for the seminar, call the Lone Star College-Tomball Community Library Reference Desk at 832.559.4211.  LSC-Tomball is located at 30555 Tomball Parkway.
