On Thursday, July 30, Tusculum College will be sponsoring a free educational program for displaced workers as part of the Office of Institutional Advancement’s Corporate Initiative Program. The overall program will include five sessions that address topics such as resume development, interviewing skills, basic skills and higher education programs and financial aid.
The program, “Exactly what you need, exactly when you need it. Take Charge of Your Change,” is designed by the College to specifically assist those who are in the job market because of the economic downturn and local employer layoffs.
Sponsored by Tusculum College’s Office of Institutional Advancement, the program is designed for those who are in the job market and need assistance in making themselves more marketable, either through continued education, by improving their interview skills or by learning about what assistance programs are available to improve their skill sets.
The program will be held 8 - 11 a.m. at the Thomas J. Garland Library on the Tusculum College campus and will include a variety of informational sessions that range from interview skills to information on financial aid for continuing education. Other offerings will include writing effective resumes, tips on searching for a job and an overview of opportunities through adult education and advanced degree programs.
Anyone interested in participating or requiring more information should contact Kim Kidwell ‘99 at 423-636-7303 to make a reservation. Participants may attend any or all of the sessions.
