do-over.me and Geneva Public Library open tool box for college students

Jan 04, 2017 12:51PM ● Published by Neighbors Magazines

Unfortunately, many colleges really don't prepare their graduates with the real life tools that they need to get a job.  Do they even realize that resumes are on life-support?   That if you don't have a strong LinkedIn profile and an active presence on the site, by the time you are a junior, you're behind the curve.  Do you have a business card?  Yes, before you get that job, not after. 

do-over.me can help.  They're poised to provide support for you during the transition from student to working professional.   do-over.me will help you stand out in a sea of mortar boards! 

do-over.me is holding a workshop at the Geneva Public Library  – Build Your Tool Kit – College Edition on Tuesday, January 10 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM.  This interactive workshop will allow each participant to create a professional resume that acts as a marketing document and gets the interview.  Each participant will craft a LinkedIn profile that will make them stand out.  Geneva Public Library and do-over.me understand the need for creating a network and helping participants understand and learn to effectively build a network.  

Participants should bring their own internet ready device with their resume loaded and have a basic LinkedIn profile already created.  This workshop is limited to 12 people so please register soon to reserve your spot (http://www.do-over.me/registering-for-events/).  This event is guaranteed to be packed with lots of practical information!

 Please sign up in advance for all events, even those that are offered at no charge.  It is important for planning purposes.  Also, if an event is cancelled, we will notify those who are registered.  If you are able to and want to come at the last minute, please do so, but call us at 630-402-0429 to see if there are any spots available.

 About do-over.me was founded in 2014 by Cynthia K. Wade as a non-profit organization that provides support for individuals in transition.  do-over.me helps students move forward from student to working professional.  Their goal is to create a community of life-long learners who see crisis as opportunity and change as a positive and necessary part of life.
