Spring Closed: Labor Day
Denver, September 1, 2014
Labor Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September.
The first Labor Day in the United States was observed on August 26, 1878, in Boston, by the Central Labor Union of New York, the nation's first integrated major trade union. It became a federal holiday in 1894, when, following the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the U.S. military and U.S. Marshals during the Pullman Strike, President Grover Cleveland put reconciliation with the labor movement as a top political priority. Fearing further conflict, legislation making Labor Day a national holiday was rushed through Congress unanimously and signed into law a mere six days after the end of the strike.
The September date was selected rather than the more widespread International Workers' Day on May 1st, because Cleveland was concerned that observance of the latter would stir up negative emotions linked to the Haymarket Affair, a demonstration and unrest that took place on Tuesday May 4, 1886, at the Haymarket Square in Chicago that resulted in the deaths of eight police officers and an unknown number of civilians.

CWB: Resume Workshop
1373 Grant St. Denver, September 6, 2014; 9am - 12pm
Colorado Welcome Back, a program of Spring Institute for Intercultural Learning, helps foreign-trained healthcare professionals re-establish careers in healthcare in Colorado. We seek to build a bridge between the pool of internationally-trained health workers living in our state and the need for linguistically and culturally competent healthcare providers. This program is for people with healthcare training from other countries who have moved to Colorado and would like to work in a healthcare setting again.
During this workshop, each participant will create a successful résumé needed for managing his or her healthcare career. In particular, we will focus on helping you:• understand the purpose of a résumé• what recruiters look for in a résumé• what information should be left off the résumé• how to best represent your skills and education• How to represent your health care and non-healthcare experience and professional accomplishments.
