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.

 Social media and communication etiquette

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!

Saturday, April 14, Amelia Branch Library, 11 am-12 pm – hosted by Stacy Books. Click to register.

 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.

 Teen Job Fair

 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!
