Jump start your job search

Over the years, I’ve written about Amy Dinning’s workshop, “Jump Start Your Job Search.” Dinning assembles a crew of people who have worked with the unemployed or people wanting to make a change and then gets them to present their best tips in an all-day workshop. Next one is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21 at the Church of the Saviour, 651 N. Wayne Ave., Wayne.

Dinning is a longtime volunteer in groups, such as My Career Transitions, that help the unemployed and she’s been unemployed herself. The main focus of the workshop, which costs $10, is networking and that’s key, because many people who lose their jobs also lose confidence in themselves. Part of the group’s goal is to provide hope as well as practical tips.
