Spark Your Success!

Spend a few hours with the Public Libraries of Saginaw so we can provide you with assistance on resume writing, the right interview skills, appropriate dress attire and the do’s and don’ts of social media etiquette.  Selected organizations will be on hand to inform you about the many job, volunteer, and career opportunities that are available to you in the Saginaw area.  You may also bring a draft of your resume, cover letters or job applications, so the Saginaw Community Writing Center from SVSU may assist you.

The seminar will wrap up with a “get motivated” presentation that will further challenge you to “Spark Your Success!”  You’ll leave feeling educated and prepared to apply and interview for that first job.  Students 15 to 21 years of age are encouraged to register and attend by calling 799-9160.
