Orientation to WorkSource Services

The most difficult part of any job search may be taking the first step. WorkSource is here to help you! During this workshop, you will receive an overview of the services available at your local WorkSource office to assist with all phases of your job search. You also will be introduced to go2worksource.com, your premier online resource for finding work in Washington state.

This workshop will introduce you to an array of employment and training services and get you connected with employment specialists who are experts in the local labor market. This information is appropriate for any job seeker. The Job-Search Readiness Inventory will guide you in getting started.

Skills and Abilities Analysis

Today’s economy requires workers who can transfer skills from one work setting to another and who have the kinds of personal qualities that make organizations successful. In this workshop, you will learn to identify, demonstrate and package, with confidence, your skills and personal qualities in ways that will be meaningful to employers. You also will learn oral communication skills and practice delivering a 60-Second Commercial - a brief, high-impact presentation to potential employers.

Job-Search Strategies

Finding out about employers in your area and creating a strategy to target your job search is the key to success. In the Job-Search Strategies class, you will learn a variety of job-search methods! This class provides tips on the value of labor-market information and introduces other strategies like networking, informational interviews and using the Internet to locate job openings.

Perfecting Applications

An important part of any job search is to understand the employer’s point of view. In this workshop, you will learn how employers read applications and how to be better prepared to meet an employer’s expectations. The workshop explores how to organize and communicate your skills and abilities in a way that stands out from the crowd. You will leave the workshop with a master application that will be helpful when filling out paper and electronic applications, and start you on your way to developing a résumé.

Résumé and Cover Letters

Successful job seekers take the time to learn what employers want. Learn how two of the four primary pieces of job-search-related communication convey to a prospective employer who you are, what you know and what you have to offer. Learn which résumé and cover letter formats best display your skills, knowledge and abilities in order to attract employers and lead to more interviews!

Interviewing Techniques

You might have the best résumé ever, but if you don’t interview well, it won’t matter. Being able to handle a job interview is a necessity for any job seeker. Knowing what employers are looking for and being prepared are absolute musts. In this workshop, you will learn valuable interviewing tips and have the chance to practice answers to frequently asked—and sometimes difficult—questions in a supportive, realistic environment.
