Bessemer Public Library to hold resume workshops

Bessemer — The Bessemer Public Library will host two resume workshops in February.

Librarian Melissa Lupino said people can come to either the Feb. 3 or Feb. 8 workshops, both at 10 a.m., and leave with a resume in hand for their next job.

Lupino said she has seen resumes that were nothing more than one or two sentences on a piece of paper, because many people do not know how to complete one.

On the flip side, a person may have a federal eight-page resume while applying for civilian jobs that only accept a one- or two-page document.

Another mistake Lupino said she frequently sees in peoples’ resumes are unnecessary skills for the job they are applying for or family information that an employee not only does not need, but the potential employer does not want. Lupino wants to help people build the kind of resume that will give them confidence to at least get a call for an interview.

People need to know what to include and what to leave out, according to Lupino. Job candidates who sign up for one of the resume workshops will leave with both a digital and printed copy of their resumes. Lupino said she would also be willing to schedule follow work, as necessary, after the workshop if people have additional questions.

The workshop is free, but people need to be comfortable typing, said Lupino. Space must be reserved ahead of time by calling 906-667-0404.
