CWCE offers free job readiness workshops in Newport

March 21, 2017

The Community College of Rhode Island’s Center for Workforce and Community Education will hold a series of free workshops designed to help participants navigate job-seeking and the workplace and be prepared for summer hiring. 

All workshops will be held in Room 200 at CCRI’s Newport County Campus, 1 John H. Chafee Blvd., Newport.

The first in the series is “Your Online Presence” from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 29. Discover what others can learn about you from social media and ways you can ensure a professional online presence that enhances your job search.

“How to Get an Interview” will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 1. Learn ways to bypass the electronic screeners, move your résumé to the top of the list and land a face-to-face meeting.

The last in the series is “Interviewing for Success,” from 3 to 5 p.m. on Monday, April 3. Why do interviewers ask questions such as, “How many manhole covers are there in New York City?” Learn how to answer interview questions from the seemingly ridiculous to the commonplace and how to conduct yourself in various interview situations.
