Finding a New Job

Finding a job can be a very difficult task. But there are some things you can do to make it easier.

The most important thing is to have a good education. More and more jobs now require at least a high school diploma. Organizations like the Lufkin Adult Learning Center assist people with improving their literacy. They can also help you get a General Equivalency Diploma, or GED.

"People with the educational skills to get these jobs have a wonderful future, and a very good rate of pay, a large potential for good benefit. But without those skills, it's like their back at square one." said Lufkin Adult Learning Center Director Bob Quillan.

Another important part of finding a job is having a proper resume. Resumes are used to tell employers about your past experiences. It's important to be precise and accurate on your resume, because some employers check them very carefully.

Another thing that's becoming more critical for job seekers is computer skills. More than ever before, employers are now looking for people who have some sort of computer training.

The bottom line is, there are agencies like the Lufkin Workforce Commission and the Lufkin Adult Learning Center that are there to help you. So take advantage of them. They just might help you get that job you're looking for.
