Having a successful interview with a prospective employer is almost always the result of advance preparation.

Job Search Check-Up
If you have been looking for work for a long time - six months or more - and have had no success, your Workforce Connection Placement Specialist can provide you with a Job Search Check-Up. During the check-up, your Placement Specialist will review job-search factors and strategies to identify what you can do to optimize your efforts. Asking for a second set of eyes to examine your job search process can often result in simple adjustments that can make a world of difference.
