Job seekers have a new set of challenges as employers turn to virtual recruiting and interviewing strategies rather than the more traditional in-person networking. This means applicants must acquire a new set of tools to help stand out from other applicants. To assist people seeking employment, the Coronado Public Library will host a virtual three-part Effective Virtual Job Search workshop presented by the San Diego Workforce Partnership. Sessions are scheduled for three consecutive Fridays at 11 a.m. as follows: 

Friday, Sept. 11, at 11 a.m. How to Work a Virtual Job Fair - During this first session, attendees will learn how to search for a virtual job professionally and successfully. The workshops will emphasize using online etiquette and demonstrate how this can make a difference in your job search.

Friday, Sept. 25 at 11 a.m. Job Seeker Marketing Tools - In this second session, the focus will be on establishing your professional brand and how to make connections in your career field.  

Friday, Sept. 25 at 11 a.m. The Power of Networking - This final session will cover how best to leverage connections and extend your network virtually.

Register for one session or all three through the library calendar at www.cplevents.org and you will receive a confirmation email. Attendees will need to provide their own access to an internet connected device to attend. If you have any questions, please call 619-522-7390.
