“Getting the Job 101” Workshop Helps Teen Job Seekers Brush Up on Etiquette and Interview Skills

As a complement to the Teen Job Fair taking place at the Fayette County Public Library on Saturday, April 5, from 2:00 until 4:00 p.m., the library has just added a free preparatory workshop on job interview skills and workplace etiquette for teens. The “Getting the Job 101” workshop takes place at the library on Thursday, April 3, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Offered with the support of the Friends of the Fayette County Public Library, the workshop, like the job fair, is open to everyone between the ages of 15 and 18, and admission is free.

The workshop will be presented by Susan Dean, local entrepreneur and past president of the Friends of the Fayette County Public Library. Ms. Dean will cover topics such as How to Win the Job, Dress for Success, How to Keep the Job, and On-the-Job Behavior. Teens who attend “Getting the Job 101” will be well prepared to meet employers at the job fair on April 5.

Local businesses in attendance at the Teen Job Fair on Saturday, April 5 will include Barnes & Noble, Chick-fil-A, Chuck E. Cheese, Cinemark Movies 10, DixieLand Fun Park, McDonalds, Old Navy, Stevi B’s Pizza, and others. Every participating employer will have job application forms ready to fill out, and will be prepared to conduct interviews with job seekers on the spot. Adding an element of fun to the event, many businesses will be providing free samples and other giveaways.

The Fayette County Public Library is located behind the Fayette County administration complex in downtown Fayetteville, at the southwest corner of Highways #85 and #54.
