A Job Skills Forum is being held tonight at Edmond Town Hall in Newtown. This is the 8th year that State Senator Tony Hwang is hosting the event. He says the free forum will bring together job skills and career services experts who will offer advice to area residents on how to find success in their job search efforts.
He says the event is about helping people who are out of work, who want to pursue new careers or are looking to find out what resources are available to them.
The forum will feature presentations by four panelists. They are Connecticut Department of Labor Regional Job Center Director Stephen Romano, The WorkPlace Communications and Development Vice President Tom Long, Behavioral Health Consultants director of organizational services James Rascati and Career Resources President and CEO Scott Wilderman. Hwang says Career Resources is one of the nation's leading non-profit workforce development organizations.
He notes that the psychiatrist will help with emotional rollercoaster of job loss and job search efforts.
