Headwaters Relief Organization hosted a community outreach event, titled “Bouncing Back From Job Loss” at the organization’s offices in Golden Valley, on March 19, 2009.

In response to significant numbers of people facing job loss, Headwaters invited the public to attend this event, which was intended to offer answers on the tactical aspects of job hunting, including answers such questions as, “How do I find a job?” and “How do I get a job?” as well as the emotional aspects of job hunting, “How am I going to get through this?”  Being able to manage both issues well is critical to finding work as quickly as possible.  The event brought together nationally-recognized talent and tactics to give job seekers the tools they need to succeed in their job hunt.

The event included presentations by Catherine Breet-Byers of Arbez, Incorporated and Dr. Deborah Fisher, with the American Red Cross Twin Cities Area Chapter, who spoke to job seekers with the goal of helping them to gain control of their job search and their lives.

The agenda for the event was as follows:
