The search for the perfect opportunity is a tough one, whether you’re looking to start an academic program or a new career. With the amount of information that is out there, where do you begin? Brooklyn Public Library has events that can help you sort through the possibilities and, hopefully, end up with the right one.
If you hope to start college, begin with Central Library’s College Networking event on January 31. From 10 AM to 3 PM, you can meet with local and out-of-state college representatives; attend career, financial aid and personal statement workshops; and win prizes like college admissions books.
Looking to change careers, or just get one started? Central Library offers monthly workshops that can help with core job searching skills: The next Resume Writing Workshop is on February 2 at 3 PM, and the next Interview Skills Workshop is on February 9 at 3 PM. If you’re new to this country and wondering how to transfer your skills to a US career, you can attend our February 24 Career Transitions workshop at 6 PM.
Finally, if you hope to be your own boss, come to the Business Library’s workshop on finding helpful resources for start-up businesses (February 15, 6 PM).
