Build Your Employment Portfolio
May 23 / 9:30 - 11:30 AM
Are you a military spouse that is being posted to a new community this summer? Have you been thinking about a new job, or a return to the workplace after an absence?  A professional portfolio is a tool that you can use to show potential employers what you have done in past jobs - and what you can bring to their organization. A portfolio will also help you to organize all of your important career information so you are ready for your job search. At this interactive workshop, you will get expert advice about what to include in your portfolio.  Audrey Prenzel is an award-winning Career Transition Specialist that has helped over 10,000 clients to get their perfect job.
