The University of Hartford will host a series of free workshops to help adults with their job searches. The "Re-Tool, Re-Invent and Re-Invigorate" series includes:
  • The Changing Economy: Where Are the Jobs? – Thursday, Jan. 28 John Kniering, director of the University of Hartford Career Services department, will discuss the eight "engines of growth" that will survive this economic downturn and provide employment when it is over. Kniering will also discuss which areas will provide relative job security, what key skills employers are seeking, and what to consider when thinking about returning to school.
  • Re-Inventing Yourself for an Effective Job Search – Thursday, Feb. 18 Kandyce Aust, director of the University's Alumni Relations department, and Linda Schultz, associate director of Career Services at the University, will teach participants strategies and self-assessment tools to identify their transferrable skills and effectively market themselves to employers.
  • Successful Networking and Schmoozing – Thursday, March 11 Eleta Jones, associate director of the Center for Professional Development at the University of Hartford, will share the networking and relationship building skills that benefit anyone looking for a job. There will also be time to practice conducting informational networking.
Pre-registration is requested for each workshop, although walk-ins are welcome. To register, call the University's Center for Professional Development at 860.768.5619.

All three workshops will be held in the Konover Campus Center, University of Hartford, 200 Bloomfield Ave., West Hartford. Participants can sign in from 5:30 to 6 p.m. Presentations take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
