Job hunters seek insight from workshop
With the unemployment rate at a 26-year high and finding a job harder than ever, job hunters received a lesson Wednesday on how to stand out from the crowd.
Job seekers attended a workshop at the Greenburgh Town Hall to try and get a leg up on others in their search for employment. Alia Lambert, of Volt Workforce Solutions, ran a seminar in which participants were told that getting a job in such a dour environment means putting your nose to the grindstone.
"You have to pull out all the stops to market yourself in this economy," says Lambert. "There's no rock unturned, no tip left unsaid or unused."
Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner says even he has been approached by people out of work looking for his help. Feiner says jobs he's aware are posted on his blog.
