LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Congressman John Yarmuth gave area job hunters some help building their skills on Friday.

Yarmuth hosted his fourth annual "Build Your Skills" workshop at Jefferson Community and Technical College's downtown campus. The event helps Louisville residents who are unemployed, under employed or looking to polish their cover letters.

"It's really not a job fair," Yarmuth said. "It's really about helping people make the most of their background and their skills to find a job that suits them."

People who attended the workshop got help with resume writing, networking skills and interviewing from human resources employees from 15 different organizations.
