HUDSON — Whether you are writing a resume for the first time or just need a professional eye to fine tune an existing one, the Hudson Area Library continues its free one-on-one Job Search Help on Fridays and by appointment. Having a qualified person work with an individual through the process of seeking a job can mean success. There are two facilitators available to work with individuals on the various aspects of looking for employment. They have training to help with, not only resumes, but interview skills, online job applications, and finding the right market for your particular job skills. They have access to job search resources online and in our area and have taken people through the process of searching for a job.
Beth Gordon is a Certified Career Services Provider, trained as a career coach through NCDA, the National Career Development Association. Beth provides professional development and advocacy to a diverse group of people who are out of work, looking to re-enter or join the workforce. She inspires and empowers individuals to achieve their career and life goals by consulting on resume writing, job search guidance, interview preparation and work ready assistance. She is available 10 a.m.-1 p.m. every Friday and by appointment.
Heather Martin, Area Coordinator of Literacy Connections, has worked with many people to frame life experience into marketable job skills, including stay-at-home moms. She can also help people to put their education and job experience from other countries into a resume for their current situation. Heather is available by appointment.
Job hunters should have basic computer skills and bring a copy of their resume if they have one. To sign up for appointments or get more information, call 518-828-1792 x101, email firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the library circulation desk.
