Fashion show, interview workshops helpful for job seekers

Fauquier County Public Library is working to aid job seekers on several fronts, including special programs and guidance via the library’s print, DVDs and online resources.

Two programs in April will help job seekers prepare for job interviews. The first, entitled A Well-Suited Fashion Show is being presented by the library in partnership with The Work Place, Literacy Volunteers, The Salvation Army, and Noah’s Ark Thrift Shop.

Models will show how inexpensive ensembles (for men and women) from outlets such as The Salvation Army and Noah’s Ark thrift shops, can be pulled together to demonstrate how to “dress for success,” especially for job interviews. There is no charge to attend the event, which begins at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 10, in the John Barton Payne Community Hall in Warrenton. Members from the Kettle Run High School orchestra are providing music for the event.

The second program is a job interview skills workshop presented in partnership with Literacy Volunteers of Fauquier County and The Work Place. The workshop will help job seekers learn skills and strategies needed for successful job interviews.

Workshops are scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, April 12, and 10 a.m. Saturday, April 17, at the Warrenton Library; and 10 a.m. Saturday, April 24, at the Bealeton Library.

The programs are being presented in conjunction with the Communities Thrive at the Library campaign in celebration of National Library Week, April 11-17.
