So just got back from my Reemployment Orientation. Must say it was better than I expected.
So it began with sitting in a room with 15-20 other individuals that are all in the same boat. Meaning we are all unemployed and have been for at least 4 weeks. It was a little surprising to see so many people in just todays orientation. Makes you realize just how hard it is to find a job in these troubled times. What will pull us out of this?
Anyways, after watching a powerpoint presentation about all the services they offer, we were then taken to a room with computers and signed up for their online site. Which actually seems like it may be a beneficial tool as it pulls job postings from Monster.com, Careerbuilder.com, Craigslist, and Private sites from any employer in Arizona. Furthermore, There are multiple employers that have agreements to post their available jobs on this site first. Amazing to have resources given to you.
Then to add to it you meet with a person who is trained in reviewing resumes. The person I met with was very helpful and gave me a great amount of advice on how to improve my resume.
Anyone looking for a job I would suggest checking out their website, they help unemployed people, but also help people with jobs that are looking for a new career. www.Arizonavirtualonestop.com
This might be the break I was needing. Hopefully this blog will be short lived and I can move on to a "starting a new job" blog.
