The Loudoun Campus hosted a two-hour resume workshop for the community in the Waddell Theatre in late May. Spearheading the operation were Information Technology faculty Tierney Pitzer and High School Outreach Coordinator Cathy Hall. Over 50 people signed up to attend this workshop, which was geared to all levels of the workforce. High school students, college students and community members interested in job opportunities were present. Some Loudoun County Public School educators were also in attendance and gave positive feedback.
As a follow up, Loudoun County’s Tuscarora High School Career and Technical Education (CTE) Program has invited Pitzer to present a resume workshop to their students during the early part of June. The event was so well received that the Loudoun Campus is interested in providing similar community outreach opportunities.
NOVA faculty and staff who are interested in providing community outreach via job search or resume workshops are encouraged to contact Pitzer at firstname.lastname@example.org, Hall at email@example.com or Loudoun Campus and Community Relations Specialist Tatyana Schum at firstname.lastname@example.org.
