Career transitions event to be held
New Hampshire–Vermont Connections group is hosting a free career transitions event for those in the Monadnock region facing layoffs Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Keene Public Library. The event was created through the need demonstrated by those who spoke to the group about upcoming layoffs in the area, including recent layoffs announced at Eastern Mountain Sports in Peterborough. Five local companies have committed to provide their resources and expertise to support the community. Attendees will have access to experts for questions and the ability to distribute resumes to three large staffing agencies from the area. Discussions will include: ways to improve your resume, job searches, benefit options and retirement plans.
