Online Resume Workshop
In a job market defined more by hiring freezes and layoffs than help-wanted ads, job seekers need to ensure that their skills and professional experience get noticed by prospective employers. A well-written résumé plays an important role in any job search.

In partnership with the Frederick County Workforce Services (FCWS), FCPL presents a on online résumé writing workshop. After completing all the required exercises in the online workshop, participants can visit FCWS for a free small group review and revision with a certified résumé specialist.
