Dowling to host work skills conference
When adults 50 and older begin looking for a new job, they usually bring to the search an array of skills that will help them succeed when they get hired. But while their work skills are impressive, their job-hunting skills often are lacking.
Dowling College's Intergenerational Center is holding a conference aimed at older job seekers. "Blueprint for Employment: Skills That Sell at Any Age" is Thursday, 8 a.m.-1 p.m. at the college's Fortunoff Hall in Oakdale. Among the subjects covered will be career counseling, efficient resume writing, how to motivate yourself for a successful search and a look at volunteer jobs that could lead to employment opportunities.
Admission is $40, which includes breakfast and lunch. For more information, call 631-244-3155.
