The Camden Public Library will host a Job Seekers Workshop on Tuesday, Jan. 26 at 6:30 p.m., led by Linda Buckmaster, employment and training coordinator at the Maine Centers for Women, Work & Community in Rockland.

Buckmaster will begin with an overview of the job situation in the Midcoast and conduct an exercise for job seekers, with time for questions and answers. In spite of the title of her organization, Buckmaster said the event is “absolutely open to men and to folks of all economic and educational backgrounds. We don’t have any income or other guidelines for participants!”

The event is part of the library’s economics series in January.

“It will be a participatory workshop so bring paper and pencil. It is suitable for jobseekers of all ages, backgrounds and experiences,” said Buckmaster in a news release. “Learn how to put your best foot forward as you look for a new job in this new economy; pick up tips on creating a resume that represents the best of who you are in language employers want to see. Learn how to write cover letters that get noticed; and develop some new skills for interviewing successfully. Devise a job-seeking strategy that will help you be more effective and keep your sanity at the same time!”

Buckmaster has been helping jobseekers for 15 years at the MCWWC. She is also adjunct faculty in communication in the University of Maine System.
