The Get the Job Career Workshop is a 4-hour career development workshop where our attendees will learn how to prepare for a career change, how to prepare and get back into the workforce, or how to prepare for a new career. This workshop is perfect for adults and young adults.

Along with the lecture, our attendees will receive handouts and information that is used throughout the session and it is yours to keep. This booklet contains vital information about the reasons for a career change, the risks, discussion topics, samples and tips, and other vital information. The attendees also receive a folder chocked full of handouts that are designed to reinforce the lecture learned and used to prepare for and obtain a career.

Some of the activities during this session included: participating in a mock interview, selling yourself, scenario discussions, building a personal brand as well as sharing personal career situations and/or experiences.
