Career Services to Offer Workshops for Successful Job Search
9/21/10


West Windsor, N.J. - The Career Services office at Mercer County Community College invites current students and alumni to attend a series of six free workshops entitled "Strategies for a Successful Job Search." Workshops are presented by Richard Stone, of the Stone Group, in Skillman, NJ. They begin Monday, Oct. 4, noon to 1 p.m., and will continue each Monday at noon through Nov. 8. Each session will conclude with a question-and-answer period. Students will also be able to schedule individual sessions with an interview coach.

According to Laurene Jones, director of Transfer and Career Services, the workshops are designed to offer proven approaches that will help job seekers with the search, the interview process, resume writing, networking and more. "Given the employment picture at present, there are usually many candidates for the same position. Applicants need to develop ways to stand out and put their best selves forward," Jones said.

Topics include: "Where Are the Jobs; How to Find Them" on Oct. 4; "How to 'Ace' the Interview" on Oct. 11; "Resumes that Really Work" on Oct. 18; "Networking…Get a Verizon Team Behind You" on Oct. 25; "The Agencies" on Nov. 1; and "Got an Offer? - How to Make It Work for You" on Nov. 8.

Jones adds that she hopes that staff and faculty will help spread the word to students around campus. "This is a great opportunity for our students to gain a solid advantage as they enter the job market. Even if they plan to transfer before working, students should have this background as they start thinking about careers."

All workshops will be held on the second floor of the Student Center, SC211, on the college's West Windsor campus. For more information, contact Career Services at 609-570-3397 or by email at
