One-on-one sessions focused on resume building, honing interview skills and job search techniques are available for all local job seekers now through March 29th

Albany, NY, January 23, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) -  Bryant & Stratton College today announced it is offering free one-on-one career sessions to local residents from January through March at the Bryant & Stratton College campus in Albany. Residents can book one-hour appointments to receive expert advice and help developing their job search skills from Valerie Pettigrass, Career Services Director at the Bryant & Stratton College Albany Campus.
The free career sessions can help those looking for ways to improve their job search strategy or first-time job seekers. At the sessions, local residents can take advantage of:
Customized feedback on their resume or assistance with resume creation  

Expert advice on drafting cover letters

Instructions and strategies on how to effectively search for jobs using keywords and popular job posting websites

Mock interview practice

Opportunities to have their resume shared with the College’s network of local employers
Job searching today is much different than it was just 10 years ago. Understanding new trends, such as using keywords in resumes and what are the best job sites, can help job seekers tremendously,” said Ms. Pettigrass. “During the sessions I will not only help participants learn how to successfully navigate the job search and application process, but how to prepare once they advance to the interview stage as well. Getting your foot in the door is the first step, but a strong interview will help you stand out from other applicants and land the job.”
