RCGC to host multiple open workshops in September

Press release issued by Rowan College at Gloucester County

The Center for People in Transition at Rowan College at Gloucester County (RCGC) hosts a number of empowerment, health and financial workshops during the month of September.

Letting Go of a Past Relationship

It is a fact of life that not all relationships stand the test of time, and holding on to them after they have ended only causes more pain. In this workshop, Sharon Roth-Lichtenfeld will walk you through the process of letting go of a past relationship so that you can free your heart and gain peace. This workshop is sponsored by United Way of Gloucester County and will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 12, from 7 to 9 p.m.

How to Search and Apply for Jobs

Finding a job in today’s technological world is not an easy task, and figuring out what to do once you have found one can be just as challenging. In this workshop, Amy Charlesworth, case manager assistant for People in Transition, will acquaint you with the online job application process, including filling out an application online, attaching your resume and creating an online profile. Popular job search sites like Indeed and ZipRecruiter will be discussed, along with the proper use of social media to support your job hunting process. This workshop is sponsored by Heart of South Jersey and will be held on Thursday, Sept. 20, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Intro to Computers

Join People in Transition’s own Amy Charlesworth for a 40-hour workshop series covering an introduction to Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. The cost of the workshop is $40 for displaced homemakers and $100 for non-displaced homemakers. This workshop will be held on Fridays, Sept. 28 to Nov. 16, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Unless otherwise noted, all workshops are free and open to the public. Registration is mandatory. Call (856) 415–2222 or email peopleintransition@rcgc.edu to register.
