Job Readiness Workshop

workshopvideo1

Last Tuesday, there was a job readiness workshop held at the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association (CCBA) at 62 Mott St. It was sponsored by City Council Member Margaret Chin, and a number of neighborhood organizations sent representatives to talk about job searching, writing resumes and cover letters, filling out applications, and the dos and don’ts of job interviews.

These representatives included Joan Fang from Chinatown Manpower Project, Jeanie Tung from Henry Street Settlement, Vickie Wong from the Chinese-American Planning Council, Katya Zaitseva from CAMBA, Danielle Rothman from Streetwise Partners, Thea Goodman from Hamilton Madison House, Gaspar Caro from the LES Employment Network, and our very own Melody Lai-Nguy from University Settlement. Eva Wong from Project Hope was the moderator.
