Job Seeker Workshops
A successful job search involves several stages and LCWC provides you with workshops at every step along the way! Our free workshops help you establish a strong foundation for an effective job search.
3 Secrets to Job Search Success
If you are someone who prefers using a map, rather than wandering around looking for your destination, this workshop is for you. After this workshop, you will know what steps to take to make your job search effective and which Workforce Center services can help you accomplish your career goals. Attendees of this workshop may also schedule an appointment to meet with a Workforce Center Employment Specialist to discuss their personal job search. These appointments are available in Loveland, Fort Collins, and Estes Park.
Career Exploration Workshop
Are you looking for a new career or unsure about what your next career move looks like? The Career Exploration workshop can help! Participants will take assessments to clarify their career interests, abilities, and values. Participants will then learn how to research current labor market trends and apply the findings to their job search.
Upcoming Workshop Dates:There are currently no upcoming dates for this workshop.
Compete and Succeed: Maximize Your Job Search Self-Marketing
Many experienced, highly-skilled workers of all ages discover barriers as they look for job opportunities in a tight labor market. Too often, employers may make assumptions or have biases that mistakenly screen out some of the best-qualified candidates.
Through a blend of attitude and action, you can overcome those barriers.
This workshop gives you the tools to:
- Develop your “self-marketing” campaign that tells your story most powerfully.
- Conduct employer and networking research that shows how you’re a great fit for the job you want.
- Find ways to update your skills and keep them sharp while you are job searching.
Do you need to submit a cover letter for a position, but aren’t sure where to begin? This workshop will teach you what to include in a cover letter, what an employer is looking for in a letter, how to structure it, and how to present yourself effectively in writing.
Interviewing: Be a STAR at Your Next Interview
Preparing for the interview is critical and will allow you to successfully sell yourself to the employer. Included in this workshop are frameworks for answering difficult questions, strategies for answering important unspoken questions, and telling stories that will help the interviewer remember you long after the interview is over.
How to Make Your Resume ROAR (Results Oriented And Relevant)
Gain insight as to what employers are looking for in a resume and how to tailor your resume to each opportunity you are pursuing. You will learn about the different resume formats and current resume practices and techniques to better communicate what you have to offer to potential employers.
