JobTalk & Java Creates Positive Energy

The JobTalk & Java kick off launched a new job forum.  The kick off invited participants to hear Gale Murphy, Goodwill Career Developer/Consultant, and Dr. Simon Whittaker, of the Whittaker Institute.  Each speaker not only presented what the respective organizations can do for job seekers but answered individual questions.

Some might think that a program for the unemployed would be dim and dark.  This event, held at the Central Library on May 6, was anything but depressing.  Speakers, hosts and the participants filled the room with positive energy.  This informal environment eased the minds of participants and allowed a direct and productive discussion.  Many of the jobseekers attending Monday’s event were ready to learn.  A dialog full of wonderful advice allowed participants to walk away with effective strategies.

Each week JobTalk & Java will continue with facilitated topics of interest to job hunters.  Library staff and guest experts will briefly present weekly themes in an interactive session designed to promote clear ideas for more effective job hunting. 

The May 13 session will present resources for finding potential employers and company information.  This session will be followed up by Online Tools for Employment that will be held on a later date.   JobTalk & Java will be held at the Central Library Tannenbaum room at 10am.  Walk-ins are welcome.  For more information you may contact Doris Jessup (373-3764) or Martha Thomas Larson (373-4559).
