I've had the good fortune to enjoy long term employment in a position I love, with people I like, in beautiful surroundings at Memorial Park Library. But back in the day, when I last dusted off my curriculum vitae in order to pursue this job, sending my application via email with my resume as an attachment seemed technologically avant-garde.
The job search process has changed substantially in the intervening years. Online resources abound, allowing job hunters to research industries, companies and work opportunities, post resumes, and network with others in their field of interest. Memorial Park Library is offering a program that will focus particularly on the networking aspect of searching for employment. Networking enables you to connect with people and opportunities in a variety of ways to access the 70 to 80 percent of jobs that are never posted. Career Basics: Enhancing Your Job Search Through Social Networking will provide instruction on using the online networking sites LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter to boost your job search campaign. This workshop will be led by professional career practitioners from Bow Valley College's Career Connection. Register now if you'd like to modernize your job search networking skills!
