HOUSTON – The San Jacinto College South Campus career services department will host a free “Career Crash Course” workshop on Monday, Nov. 19, from 5:30 – 7 p.m., in building 7, room S7.152.

The workshop will feature current trends in resume development to help applicants stand out in today’s job market, interviewing strategies for a number of interview scenarios, job search tips and hiring expectations. Attendees are encouraged to bring their current resumes to reference as information is presented during the workshop.

“Today’s job market can be overwhelming with many finding the job searching process alone difficult to navigate,” says Brittany Bonds, San Jacinto College career services coordinator. “Often, some of the largest hurdles for job seekers are understanding how to revise, update and structure their resumes for the jobs they are seeking, as well as effectively interviewing once they are contacted by an employer. San Jacinto College’s career services department is offering the ‘Career Crash Course’ workshop because we have a variety of resources that can help prepare job seekers for these key aspects in their career journey.”

The free “Career Crash Course” workshop is open to general public and all San Jacinto College students, alumni, faculty and staff. The South Campus is located at 13735 Beamer Road in Houston.
