The Department of Economic Security (DES) and ARIZONA@WORK offer a wide range of no-cost employment readiness services to help you return to work or prepare for a new career. In addition to meeting with a Workforce Specialist to discuss your job goals and search for jobs, ARIZONA@WORK also offers virtual employment workshops.
Here are 3 employment workshops that can help you prepare for your next great job:
- Create A Winning Resume
Since creating a resume can be an infrequent occurrence, it can be hard to keep up with what it takes to create one that is modern and effective. Is it still necessary to have a cover letter? How many years of work experience should be included? This workshop will help you understand what makes a great resume and how to format it in a way that is desirable to hiring employers.

- Interview Skills for Success
After your updated resume is sent to hiring employers, you may be called for what is often the most intimidating step in a job search: an interview. The Interview Skills for Success workshop can help you brush up on your interview abilities so you can be prepared and confident. This workshop will help you learn how to answer common interview questions, what you should do after an interview and more. Register to attend the Interview Skills for Success workshop.

You have your resume and you’re ready for interviews, but you keep hearing people mention LinkedIn. Is it really necessary to have a LinkedIn account and if so, what is it used for?
