This Friday will be a special one for LPJC. Veronica Zaragovia from Public Radio station KUT will be visiting our meeting. She’s doing a story on older job seekers in the Austin market and thought she might find a few of those highly-talented-but-often-overlooked individuals in our midst. Because of Veronica, our program this Friday will focus on the various challenges job seekers face in the Austin market: long-time unemployment, lack of marketable skills, overqualification, unwillingness to relocate, age discrimination, and any others you’d like to bring up. We’ll be focusing on SOLUTIONS to those problems, not whining about them, so leave your tissues at home. [Note: scroll down to see additional events taking place at this Friday's meeting.]
Location: The meeting will take place at 10:00 a.m. at the Capital City Events Center, 6700 Middle Fiskville Road, suite 403, on the corner of MF and Huntland. The Events Center faces Huntland and is located next to the movie theatre.
Date to be announced: Terry O’Donnell – How I Landed My Dream Job
