"If I had to start over I would have embarked on the process of RochesterWorks! sooner...
I went through 2 1/2 months of job searching before I realized that what I was doing wasn't working the way it had in the past...The workshops taught me how to reorganize my job search, develop a marketing plan, enhance my resume, and better leverage my network of friends and acquaintances." - Gary
"Take as many classes at RochesterWorks! as possible and as soon as possible.
All of the classes were extremely helpful, but if I had to pick two that helped me the most they would be Right Your Resume
and Interviewing: Beyond the Basics
." - David
"Every time I went to RochesterWorks! I learned at least one new thing that I could apply to my job campaign.
When I first came to RochesterWorks! I was pleasantly surprised at the variety of programs and took everything I could! The staff helped me with my confidence so that I was as prepared as possible to present who and how I can help in the interview." -Valerie
"I can’t believe that there are people who don’t use it or know about RochesterWorks! When I came in I hadn’t conducted a real job search in about 20 years. The staff helped me to fill in the gap of self-confidence that I needed to be prepared for a job search.
I took several workshops
including Basic Resume, Resume Review, Right Your Resume, Catchy Cover Letters, Kick Start Your Job Search,
and Negotiating Your Job Offer
. The resume workshops with Annie Walker were especially invaluable. In every workshop we were asked to give our 45-second commercial. This built my confidence and helped me to practice connecting with people." -Daryl
