Day one was a Resume Writing Workshop that focused on the proper formatting techniques which was followed by day two an Interview Workshop that noted the dos and don’ts of interviewing. Amish reflected on the event by stating, “The workshops really benefited them; we used a unique approach by connecting with the group not only on a professional level but on a personal level as well, we wanted to make them feel comfortable.” At each workshop a PowerPoint presentation was shown followed by one-on-one assistance.  Nick, commented on the event stating, “We gave them advice on everything from what to wear to an interview to making your resume stand out to employers.” Staying up to date on beneficial tips like the ones given at the Ruth Ellis Center can give you the upper hand when trying to land a job. “This event a great way for Reliance One to be involved in the community and assist people with their resume and interview skills in order to improve their future”, Lindsay added.  To get more information on up-coming events for Reliance One, visit and click on News and Events.
