With spring on the horizon, it’s natural to think about renewal and a fresh start after a long, dreary winter. One part of this process might be a review of where you are in your professional life. If you are curious about pursuing new career opportunities, then consider taking part in the job search workshops, employer information sessions and one-on-one career counseling opportunities at the second annual WorkLaunch: Career Connections and Workshops event, a collaboration of Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh and Career Development Center, hosted March 28 through March 31.
WorkLaunch spans four days across four libraries. Each of the first three days will offer skill building workshops for job seekers offered by the Career Development Center, including topics such as LinkedIn Strategies and Successful Career Transitions. Representatives from major companies, including FedEx, Rivers Casino and Duquesne Light will also provide information sessions on their hiring opportunities. And, one-on-one career counseling with Career Development Center counselors will be available each day.
The fourth and final day of WorkLaunch is a Career and Community Resource fair at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh – Main featuring networking opportunities with over 20 employers and community resource providers, including Allegheny County, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Dress for Success, Giant Eagle, PNC Bank and many more.
