North Shore Career Resource Center Helps Job Seekers
The nearby non-profit pairs job seekers with volunteer counselors to develop a professional plan of action.
The worst of the Great Recession is over, but jobs aren't hanging from trees just yet. At least one nearby non-profit is helping clients build careers.
After a single, $145 fee, clients of Lake Forest's Career Resource Center get matched with a dedicated professional adviser and learn about professional networking, online and computer tools, resume writer, job interviews, along with access to workstations with computers, phones and copy machines, the Glenview Announcements reports.
“Right from the get go, I knew I was dealing with people who were concerned and who seemed very capable of helping,” Glenview's Mark Jerva told the Glenview Announcements after joining the organization. “They offer so many different programs and training sessions, and help with everything from cover letters to resumes to interviewing and electronic media, like Linkedin, all the things it takes to be successful in today’s job market.”
