“Seek and Ye Shall Find” is true today just as was when it was quoted by Jesus. This scripture has become the marching tune for many looking for employment. With the unemployment rate hovering around 15% for the residents of Camden, looking a job can be a challenging if not discouraging. Whether seeking employment for the first time or a change in careers can take new skills, education and preparation. To help in this challenge, Second Chance and United Neighbors sponsored an employment and entrepreneurial workshop in June and October. Each workshop provided instructions to guide the participants in their employment search. Having the right resume prepared, tools to research companies and techniques to improve your interviewing skills were some of the key topics presented at the workshop. For those who were looking to start their own business, presentations were given on how to prepare a good business plan. Over forty participants were in attendance. Each hopefully received the right encouragement and information that is needed to be successful in their career aspirations.
