If you are in the job market, or know someone who is, free professional help is available at All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Fort Worth. The Career Solutions Workshop is a useful resource for anyone seeking new employment, or hoping to make their next step up the career ladder.
The 12-week workshop, which runs on a repeating cycle, begins anew on Monday, February 8 at 6 pm. Because Monday is the introductory session, it’s the optimal time to join the class, although students are accepted at any time. There is no charge for the course, other than purchasing a paperback text and workbook.
Topics covered in the workshop include effective networking, resumé development, how to create and present an oral resume and much more. The All Saints’ class is taught by Maureen Walkinshaw, a veteran recruiter, with assistance from All Saints’ parishioner Mary Shannon and the Rev. Johnson Shannon as pastoral advisor.
For a job hunter who might not have been in the marketplace for a few years, the class offers a supportive and encouraging place to enhance job-searching savvy and the interviewing skills that today’s hiring managers expect to see. Attention is paid not just to the logistics of launching an intensive job search, but also to the emotional and spiritual aspects of dealing with unemployment and life change.
