Expert advice for jobseekers

JOBSEEKERS and those looking to change their career can pick up some expert advice at a new club in Pill.

Set up by a long-term village resident, Carolyn Williams, the group will allow job seekers to get advice and support to help them find work.

The job club meets at the resource centre in Baltic Place every Wednesday from 10am to noon and held its first meeting last week.

Those attending will have the chance to meet others looking for work and share their job hunting experiences.

Expert advice on CV writing and interview techniques will be given as well as information on local job opportunities. Staff and representatives of local businesses will also be invited to speak to members.

Carolyn, who has lived in Pill for 12 years, has written a number of career guidance books under the pseudonym of Lynn Williams, including Ready Made CVs, The Ultimate Interview Book and The Ultimate Job Search Book.

The Myrtle Hill resident, who used to also run a job club for the Department of Employment, said: “Experience shows that being part of a job club not only makes job hunting a less stressful experience, it also makes it a successful one, which is why I wanted to set one up in this area.
