Listen as Stacy talks about the work readiness events and the Teen Job Fair.
HIRED: Developing the Skills You Need to Get the Job You Want
Need a job to pay for textbooks, after-school clubs, or just to finance your Starbucks habit? Join us for any part of our five-session work readiness series for teens (ages 14 and up), young adults and college students. If you’re looking for a part-time, after-school, or seasonal job—or even a volunteer opportunity—these classes will help you get ready for our Teen Job Fair at the Union Township Branch Library on April 28.
Resumes: you need ‘em; you hate ‘em. They are the most basic tool—and sometimes the hardest—you have to master in order to land a job. But what do you put on a resume when you’re a teen with little or no job experience? Learn how to create your own resume and cover letter with a representative from Clermont County Career Connections. Master techniques and learn some stand-out-in-a-crowd tricks; have your resume ready to submit to interested employers at our Teen Job Fair on April 28. Light refreshments will be served.

Dressed to impress: How to present yourself at a job interview
So you have your resume written, polished, and ready to wow potential employers. Now what? Before you start your job search, you might want to think about what to wear (or what not to wear) to a job interview. Join us as we go over tips and tricks to get the most out of your wardrobe, and how to turn items you already own into professional garb. We’ll have some clothes for you to try on and take home, as well as a lesson on how to tie a tie! Gain the confidence needed to look your best before our Teen Job Fair at the Union Township Library on April 28. Light refreshments will be served.
Your resume is looking great, and so is your wardrobe. What’s next? You may think you’re a social media guru, but do you know what potential employers are looking for online? Learn tips to always put your best self online – what’s appropriate and what’s not on social media. You’ll also learn tips about emailing and talking on the phone with potential employers. Coffee and doughnuts will be served for this morning session!
They Want to Know WHAT? – mock interviews
You’re almost ready for your big interview! But maybe you’ve never had a job interview before, and you’re not quite sure what to expect. What will they ask? How long will it last? Our final work readiness event will have you prepared and feeling confident before meeting potential employers. Join us for our mock interview session; come dressed in your interview attire and get ready to do some role playing as we teach you the skills you need to ace that interview. This is the last work readiness event before the big Teen Job Fair at the Union Township Branch on April 28. Light refreshments will be served.
All your hard work and preparation has guided you here today! Come meet potential employers, learn more about their companies, introduce yourself, and hand in copies of your resume; you may even get an on-the-spot job interview, or set one up for the future. Come early for your best chance to meet as many employers as possible. Our library staff in charge of the event will be on hand to help you prep for potential on-the-spot interviews. We’ll even have a re-charge station with snacks and drinks. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet some great employers in the area!
