Jump start your job search

Just a quick last-minute reminder for those of you who need some help in a job search -- maybe you've been laid off, maybe you are a graduate, maybe you just hate where you work and need a change. 

There's a 5 p.m. deadline to sign up for Saturday's "Jump Start Your Job Search" at Rosemont College's McShain Hall in Rosemont. "Jump Star" is an all-day (8:15 a.m. to 4 p.m.) $15 seminar on getting a job. Topics include social media and job search, networking, interviewing, learning how to stand out from the crowd. Also included is a motivational session designed to re-inspire. That can be a must in the often depressing hunt for work and meaning. Click here to sign up.

One of the coordinators is Amy Dinning, a human resources professional, who just recently started a job after a long stint of unemployment. She has organized these sessions as her way of giving back to the large and very supportive community of the unemployed. You can read my profile of Amy by clicking here.
