Job Success @ the Library

In a typical week, how many people come to your library for help filing for unemployment, searching for a job possibility, creating a resume or preparing for an interview? The library’s role as a resource for these needs has expanded greatly, proving the adage that when times are tough libraries flourish. But are you prepared to assist those coming in for help? The Job Success @ the Library workshop addresses four critical areas of service:
