Career workshop planned for laid off Lakota teachers

More than 150 Lakota employees will be losing their jobs over the next two months due to the district's budget reduction plan.

But something is being done to get those employees back up on their feet.

The Lakota Education Association in partnership with the district's human resources department will put on a career workshop for employees on Saturday March 24th.

"We really wanted to give an opportunity for people to tune up their job search skills, most people have been out of the job market for awhile, and finding a job nowadays is a lot different than it use to be," said John Severns, Vice President of the LEA.

At Saturday's workshop there will be resume help, social networking advice and interview tips. The workshop isn't only for those being laid off.

"We'll have several retirees who are looking for the next stage of their life, and how do they move on," said Severns. "We have people who have been here for awhile who may not be laid off but they're saying this may be a good opportunity for me to move on."

More than 200 people are expected to attend the workshop. It goes from 8 a.m.- noon at Lakota West High School.
