Tools for Job-Seekers
Every year, I host the “Build Your Skills: A Job Hunter’s Guide to Success” workshop at Jefferson Community and Technical College. The event is designed to help Louisvillians obtain and strengthen the skills they need to take full advantage of new opportunities as our economic recovery continues. Residents of the Third Congressional District attend workshops and one-on-one interview trainings to brush up on their skills, and they hear directly from employment experts about the skills employers look for when hiring new workers.
Hundreds of Louisvillians have attended my Build Your Skills workshops. People from across our community told me they left the workshops feeling inspired and better equipped to land the job they wanted. You can see what they said for yourself by clicking here.
Below you will find links to Louisville-based resource providers, as well as some of the presentations offered at this year's event.
