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.

Participants will also learn how to connect their assessment results to industries and occupations that match those results.
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.
