Jobs & Careers Center at the San Francisco Main Library Offers Two New Classes for Job Seekers

San Francisco Public Library’s Jobs & Careers Center at the Main Library is offering two new classes in August to help job seekers in their career search.

In the workshop Branding Yourself for the Job Market, executive transition coach Julie Kramer will tell jobseekers why, when and how to brand themselves in the competitive job marketplace. She will explain the job market game in a new way, moving job seekers into action through a lifetime of job changes.  Coach Julie has 30 years experience coaching in many different corporate environments, with more than 100 start-ups and Fortune 500 companies.

Branding Yourself for the Job Markets – Thursday, Aug. 8, 6 p.m., Main Library, Latino/Hispanic Community Room, lower level, 100 Larkin St., San Francisco.

A LinkedIn profile is one the first places employers look when they are considering contacting potential hires.  In the workshop, Find Your Dream Job Using LinkedIn, instructor Daniel O. Michael will show jobseekers how to make sure their profile is found by the right people and looks the most professional and credible to today’s hiring managers.  In this class, participants will learn how to build a brand, choose the best picture, tagline and summary, highlight past experiences, connect with others, search for jobs and people, and other ways of optimizing a LinkedIn profile. Michael has worked for 25 years as a job developer, coordinator and director of numerous work rehab/social entrepreneurial programs in nonprofit, government and small business environments.
