Job search workshops scheduled in April

The One-Stop Business & Career Center has launched a new monthly Job Search Workshop at the Madelyn Helling Library. The first session will be held at 11 a.m. on April 17.

These workshops will be led by Career Center Advisor Marc Nocerino, who will present a holistic approach to job exploration from basic tried-and-true job search strategies to new and innovative ways to boost the job seeker’s reach and results.

Each session will consist of an emphasis on core strategies for an effective online job search, followed by a different rotating topic to give additional information on related skills, such as social media and online presence, crafting a digital cover letter, Applicant Tracking Software (ATS) optimized resume writing, virtual interviewing tips and more.

These workshops are a compliment to those currently being offered at the One Stop Business and Career Center by Career Development Consultant Amie Weaver on a monthly basis; the main difference is the emphasis on online job search strategies covering conventional methods as well as contemporary, cutting-edge ideas.

All workshops are open to the public and free of charge. The flier can be found at

Waste tire amnesty results

​The Department of Public Works recently completed the waste tire amnesty event. The event began at the McCourtney Road Transfer Station on March 16-17. It continued on March 18-19 at the North San Juan Transfer Station, and completed on March 20 at the Washington Transfer Station.

At each location, the inflow of tires exceeded expectations. For example, last year Washington Transfer Station received approximately 30 tires. This year, well over 200 tires were collected. In total, more than 9,000 tires were received during the week, filling six 54-foot-long trailers. Since the inception of the program eight years ago, between 110,000-115,000 tires have been collected.
