Alabaster seniors tweak their résumés

March 14, 2013 by  

The Albert L. Scott Public Library in Alabaster is the venue for a workshop that assists older adults in updating and honing their job seeking skills. In partnering with Positive Maturity/AWARE (Ageing Workers are Reliable Employees), the library is able to offer this month-long workshop in its meeting room.

As stated by Alabaster’s city website, the focal point of the seminars is to afford older Americans the opportunity to obtain the required skills that will prepare them for a successful foray into today’s workforce. These stand-alone, free of charge workshops are held every Wednesday from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm during the month of March.

The library, which is located at 100 9th Street NW, held a workshop on sharpening interviewing skills yesterday. A ‘How to Network’ clinic will follow on March 20 and a course that instructs its students on how to create a dazzling, print company quality résumé will conclude the month on March 27.

For additional information, please contact the Albert L Scott Library at 205.664.6822 or visit the City of Alabaster website, where an online calendar of events and a digital catalog printing of the library’s services is available for viewing.

Positive Maturity/AWARE is cognizant of the fact that older adults are a valuable community resource, believing that they possess the knowledge, experience, and abilities required to assert a positive influence and impact within their communities.

As a partner of United Way, Positive Maturity is headquartered in Birmingham and works with seniors in the counties of Blount, Walker, Jefferson, and Shelby.
