Area workshop to focus on interviewing tips

Friday, February 5, 2010

GREENCASTLE -- Purdue Extension Putnam County is planning to host a series of help sessions to assist residents with cover letters, resume writing, completing applications and interviewing tips.

Features like "power statements" and developing attractive documents will be featured.

One of the toughest skills in interviewing is honestly being assertive about one's self. Confidence is extremely important.

There will initially be two help sessions where individuals may come for the entire time or simply come to have information critiqued and depart.

Due to the nature of the "come and go" format, it is important for individuals to RSVP for the workshops.

Those who participate in the help sessions may also sign up to participate in a round robin mock interview session featuring human resource representatives from area businesses and agencies.

The mock interview component will give participants the experience of numerous interview styles and personalities.

Individuals, whether currently unemployed or seeking to improve employment position, may benefit from the program.

The sessions will take place at the local Purdue Extension Putnam County office, located at the Putnam County Courthouse Annex, 209 W. Liberty St., Room 5, Greencastle, where it is best to park and enter off of Madison Street on the west side of the building.

The next upcoming session will be from 9 a.m.-noon, Monday, Feb. 15.

The following session will be 5-8 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 23.

For more information, call 1-765-653-8411 or log on to www.extension.purdue.edu/putnam to view a workshop flyer.
