Coney Islanders on the hunt for a job can prepare for the interview process at a series of upcoming workshops in the People’s Playground. The four free events, co-sponsored by local leaders with the Alliance for Coney Island and Kingsborough Community College, will feature mock interviews and resume-writing tips in order to help attendees get and keep jobs, according to the college’s director of workforce development.

“Offering job-readiness workshops that prepare the residents of Coney Island for the workforce and sustainable employment is such an integral part of the services we provide,” said Christine Zagari-LoPorto.

Coney residents ages 18 and older can attend the workshops, which hosts will stage on March 21 and 28 from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm at the Coney Island Library, and on April 2 and 9 from 6 to 8:30 pm at the Carey Gardens Community Center.

Interested job-seekers should bring a resume if they have one, according to an Alliance rep, who said the workshops will prepare locals to sell themselves at a recruitment fair next month, when employers will be hiring for seasonal, mostly part-time positions in the amusement district.

Job-readiness workshop at the Coney Island Library (1901 Mermaid Ave. at W. 19th Street in Coney Island) on March 21 and 28, from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. Free.

Job-readiness workshop at the Carey Gardens Community Center (2315 Surf Ave. at W. 24th Street in Coney Island) on April 2 and 9, from 6 pm to 8:30 pm. Free.
