Since February of 2014, Goodwill and Spoon River College’s Office of Community Outreach have been partnering to offer FREE job skills workshops. The program began with offerings in McDonough and Fulton counties and has since expanded to Mason County. Approximately 67 students have been served through this program with the majority of the students taking 3 classes each.
Workshops have been developed to cover a range of topics helping participants improve needed skills that employers are looking for. Topics include: Computer Skills for the Workplace, Get Your Skills Together, and Nail the Interview.
Computer Skills for the Workplace teaches participants the basics of the computer, the Internet, and Microsoft Word. These computer skills will help with online job searches and creating a resume.
Get Your Skills Together teaches participants to navigate online job search sites, organize thoughts and skills, and create an effective resume.
Nail the Interview teaches participants how to prepare for an interview and techniques to present themselves and their skills in the most effective manner.
