Collins McNicholas Recruitment & HR Services are hosting a free event to provide valuable advice to anyone searching for a job. The event will examine all areas of the job search but in particular will focus on how to find the job you are looking for, apply for the opportunity, and prepare and present at an interview. The event will run from 10am to 5pm in the Sheraton Athlone Hotel on Monday October 21 and is open to anyone who wishes to attend, from individuals starting their first job search to those looking to re-enter the work force or seeking to change employment.
Sean Gannon, regional manager, Collins McNicholas Midlands region said “We have identified a growing need for people to improve their presentation skills during the job search process. This includes presentation of their CVs and cover letters through to their presentation at interview. We are in a competitive job market and people need to take every opportunity to increase their potential for success, or as a bare minimum, ensure they are not at a disadvantage by presenting poorly. In fairness, a lot of job seekers have recognised this and over the last few months we have recognised an increased number of requests to provide this type of advice. We are delighted that The Sheraton Athlone and the Athlone Advertiser have come on board with us which allows us to provide this initiative free of charge. I would encourage anyone who is currently searching for a job or considering commencing a job search process to come along on the day either to drop in for a short while or for the whole day.”
The day will include a ‘CV advice’ seminar at 10am, ‘How to look for a job’ seminar at 11am and ‘Interview skills’ seminar at noon. The same seminars will be repeated in the afternoon on the hour from 2-4pm. All are welcome to attend some or all seminars. Attendees will also have the opportunity to have a one-to-one discussion with a consultant if they so wish. Booking is advised for one-to-ones but not essential; if no booking is made there may be a slight waiting time.
