Getting Your Job Search Started

While looking for work can be an exciting time, it can also involve fear and discomfort about change and the unknown. Whether you are already in the midst of a job search or just thinking about it, this one-day workshop will help you to determine what your skill set is made up of, the kind of work that is important and realistic to include in your search, and how to get started.
