Career help sessions

MONTICELLO, NY — The Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library will hold career counseling sessions on Wednesday, April 30 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.; Thursday, May 29 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon; and Saturday, June 21 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.

The Career Transition Assistance Program (CTAP) is targeted to the needs of today’s job hunter. CTAP is a resource consisting of free one-on-one individualized career coaching sessions. Job seekers will meet with career coach Gregg Knowles to get help writing their resume and/or cover letters, exploring career options, developing effective strategies for their job search, and preparing for job interviews. Each session will be 45 minutes long.

“Although the economy is showing signs of improving, many unemployed or underemployed workers are still looking for work,” Knowles said. “They need to know how to portray their skills on a resume and during interviews, find jobs in the ‘hidden job market,’ deal with age bias, and master the often impersonal technology-driven job search.”

Registration is required. Call the library at 845/794-4660, ext. 7 to register for one of these sessions.
