LOCKPORT, Ill. – State Rep. John Connor, D-Lockport, will partner with career planning experts from Lewis University to provide a free resume writing workshop to local residents at the White Oak Library, located at 121 E. 8th St. in Lockport, on Thursday, June 21 at 10:30 a.m.
“Having a well-written resume is critical to successfully finding a job, and knowing how to effectively showcase your skills to employers is just as important,” Connor said. “Whether someone is looking for feedback on their already drafted resume or needs help getting started, this workshop will give them the opportunity to ask any questions they may have about searching for a job and compiling an effective resume.”
Representatives from Lewis University’s career services department will answer questions and explain how to build an effective resume. They will also be available to discuss ways for applicants to make themselves more attractive to employers and secure job interviews. This event is free and open to the public.
“I’m happy to have the opportunity to host a resume workshop and help provide career planning resources to residents in my district,” Connor said. “I hope that this will help people feel more confident when applying for jobs and aid them in their search for employment. I’m grateful for Lewis University and their help in providing this workshop to residents.”
