Seniors looking for work can hone their job search skills at the Job Search Workshop for Older Workers, sponsored by the Mayor’s Office for Senior Citizens (MOSC), on Wednesday, November 16, 2011, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Central Building, 810 3rd Ave., 1st floor conference room, Seattle 98104.
A MOSC job counselor will be on hand to discuss LinkedIn, networking, resume writing, cover letters, interviewing and other tips and techniques for older job seekers.
The workshop will also feature Beverly Kashino, Human Resources Director at YMCA of Greater Seattle, who will discuss working at nonprofit organizations: how they hire, and how to prepare for and apply for work in the nonprofit world.
