This workshop will cover different styles of job interviews and common questions employers ask: "Tell me about yourself"; "Why should we hire you?"; "Give me an example of a conflict you had"; and "What are your strengths and weaknesses?" We will also cover what to do if you are stuck, how to respond to illegal questions, and how to explain gaps and other problem issues in your background (we all have those).

 

Also, there are many items available to check out on resumes and intereviewing, plus access to our newest eSource, Lynda.com, an American online education company offering thousands of instructional video courses in software, creative, and business skills.  ALL are available to you free with your library card, and we provide one-on-one computer help too!  If you need a little extra help online with your job search or assistance formatting your resume, reservations can be made in-person or by calling the Library Partnership at 352-334-0165.
