Free 'Job to Career Readiness Bootcamp' for New Mexico Job Seekers

I'm partnering on three career readiness workshops in Southern New Mexico to help job seekers strengthen their interview skills and better prepare themselves to land a job.

If you're a New Mexico resident over the age of 18 and looking for employment, I invite you to take advantage of our free upcoming Job to Career Readiness Bootcamp workshops.

Employers in Doña Ana county seek up to 1,000 entry level employees for manufacturing, secretarial and clerical, and call center positions, and this event will help job seekers in Doña Ana County obtain the skills needed to fill these positions. All attendees who complete the workshop may submit an application to the hiring employers.

The workshops are free, but space is limited to 100 people per session, so I encourage you to RSVP by calling (575) 527-7538. Breakfast and lunch will be provided to all registered participants.

Free Job to Career Readiness Bootcamp

The Job to Career Readiness Bootcamp workshops are great opportunities for anyone interested in expanding their skill sets and learning how to more effectively present and market themselves to potential employers.

Topics covered at the workshops will include:

- Workplace Do's & Don'ts
- Interviewing Tips & Techniques
- Pre-employment Hiring Requirements
- Employment Application Strategies

By preparing our workforce with the skill set to match employer demands, we can help strengthen our communities and boost the economy in Doña Ana County. Special thanks to the Mesilla Valley Economic Development Alliance (MVEDA), Doña Ana Community College (DACC) and the City of Las Cruces for partnering with me on these workshops.

If you know someone who might also benefit from these workshops, please forward this invitation or share it on Facebook or Twitter.
