We Want to Help YOU (find a job)!!!
As part of this initiative, a decision was made to "beef up" the job-related materials in our collection. Over a thousand books, eBooks, audiobooks and DVDs were purchased to enhance career materials already in the collection. These cover a wide-range of topics from entering the job market, to starting a home-based business, to re-entering the job market, or just information about a variety of careers for people wondering what they might want to do. Here's just a sampling of recently purchased items that might be of interest:
We offer computer classes to assist job seekers that include instruction on computer basics, Microsoft Office products, key train, presentation skills, job search basics, resume and job search workshops. Here's a schedule of upcoming classes for April and May being offered in the Community Technology Center at Central. We also have 129 PCs (including 2 ADA terminals) at Central with Microsoft Office products loaded on each one to assist job seekers. The branches also offer public PCs for their customers.
Additionally, we have online databases to help you with your job search or to provide skills enhancement tests. Here's a sample of a few that could be of assistance to job seekers:
