The Alabama Career Center will hold a job search workshop Wednesday, Jan. 26 beginning at 9 a.m. Persons interested in finding a job and gaining valuable career advice are encouraged to attend.

The workshop, which stresses interview skills, resume writing and dressing for success, is free of charge.

“We do this monthly and each one is different,” Clifford Hunter, Workforce Investment Act coordinator, said. “This will be beneficial for the public.”

Vivian Black, Selma Careerlink facilitator, said workshops last about one hour and have been successful in times past.

“This workshop will focus on what to do and not do when looking for a job and where to find the jobs,” Black said. “We will also focus on how to dress appropriately for and how to act during an interview.”

Black said interested residents may preregister for the workshop and though registration if preferred, people can still come out and sign up. The last day for preregistration is 5 p.m. Tuesday.

“Door prizes will be given to the first one who signs in on the day of the workshop and to the first one who preregistered for the workshop,” Black said.

Black said the career center’s goal is to help people find jobs.

“We try to help people with the job process,” Black said. “If we can help people get what they need to land them the job, then we’ve done our job.”
