Career Vision Workshop Helps Take Drudgery Out of Job Searching

The Santa Barbara Public Library System will host a free Career Vision workshop, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, at the Eastside Library, 1102 Montecito St.

The six-hour employment workshop will present innovative and imaginative ideas that turn the job search process from reactive to proactive.

Participants will find ways to embark on a motivational journey to discover a career vision to expand the job search, explore careers, identify potential employers, build a resume, analyze job descriptions, and use public library career and job resources.  
Career Vision is for new adults and teens, the unemployed, underemployed, part- and full-time job seekers, career changers, retirees and workforce returnees, for GEDs, Ph.Ds, students, recent grads, and workforce and career education professionals.

The workshop is a continuation of programming in which the Santa Barbara Public library System partners with other organizations aiming to make employment and education more accessible to adults of all ages.

Presenter Jamie Beck is a former CSU Career Counselor; he holds an MA in human services with an emphasis in social systems and a concentration in family and work.

Career Vision, a holistic career program, has been reshaping the way job seekers fundamentally conceptualize, search and apply for work for the past eight years.

Registration is not required, although seating  may  be  limited; no  formal  lunch  break, so participants are urged to bring a bag lunch.

Career Vision Workshops for New Adults is supported in whole or in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.
Visit the Santa Barbara Public Library System online at SBPLibrary.org for information about library hours, locations, programs and services. All library programs are free and open to the public.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
