Looking for a Job?

Several years ago when I was laid off from my job as an Air Force contractor, I needed help getting back in the job search mode. My resume needed to be updated. I felt I needed interview tips. I got lots of tips from the classes at the Texas Workforce Commission on Airport Blvd. Kathy L taught the classes and told me about the Launch Pad Job Club.

I am hearing about lots of young adults getting laid off now and they might benefit from this. You only have to attend one meeting to have access to their (and here is the important part) job listings. As people, especially Kathy, hear about openings they are posted on this Yahoo! based club. Quite a few of the listings are tech-related but some are government (what I was looking for) and other areas.

YES! I used the Texas Workforce office on Airport Blvd in 2007. It was great to leave the house everyday for my job search. I went to all of their classes, especially the ones led by Kathy L. She really wants you to land the right job, and has an enormous amount of information to share.
