One-Stop Career Center career coaches want to make sure no one is left out during a job search because they aren’t utilizing the professional networking website, LinkedIn.
That’s why the staff at the One-Stop Career Center inside the West Las Vegas Library, located at 951 W. Lake Mead Blvd. (at MLK), Las Vegas, NV 89106, will hold a free “LinkedIn or Left Out” workshop on Thursday, March 7, 2019 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome.
The workshop will be divided into two one-hour classes. Attendees will learn how to create a LinkedIn profile recruiters will love from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. From 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., attendees will learn how to use LinkedIn to boost a job search. Attendees can attend one or both sessions.
The “LinkedIn or Left Out” workshop at the West Las Vegas Library follows January’s successful “The Great Resume Review,” where nearly 70 individuals had their resumed reviewed for free by One-Stop Career Center professionals, as well as had the opportunity to get a complimentary LinkedIn headshot.
The West Las Vegas Library is one of eight valley libraries to host a One-Stop Career Center location as part of the growing partnership between Workforce Connections, Southern Nevada’s Local Workforce Development Board, and local library districts such as the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District.
