The ongoing Coronarvirus (COV-19) pandemic has led to the cancellation, suspension and repurposing of programs and events in the Greater Raritan workforce system and beyond.
The monthly Jersey Job Club workshops and events usually conducted at the Somerville One Stop Career Center have been suspended.
Workshops presented in person by the Greater Raritan One Stop Career Training Center have moved to virtual platforms, as have introduction sessions on SkillUp Greater Raritan, a program of the Greater Raritan Workforce Development Board (GRWDB). New virtual programs also are being developed.
In addition, all GRWDB Board and Committee meetings are being conducted virtually.
Look on the calendar for more information on all programs and meetings.
Career Webinar: Using Online Job Applications
November 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Applying for a job and encountering an unfamiliar experience? When you submit an application online, your materials are first read by a computer program.
In this webinar running from 7 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 17, participants will learn how to customize your resume with the right keywords. They also will explore the various file formats that applicant tracking systems read best, and understand what materials you might need ahead of time, just in case there is a time-limit for the application. Questions are encouraged.
Information and resources will be presented by staff members of the Great Raritan Workforce Development Board; this webinar is cohosted by the Somerset County Library System of New Jersey.
