On May 7th, we offered a full day of workshops devoted to job search, resume, and interview skills at the library. Due to the positive feedback from those who attended, we will announce an upcoming day of workshops in the fall. Our business reference librarian, Jeff provided a list of great resources and links of the various job search sites and their uses.
A question was asked about whether there were any resources available for ex-offenders to return to the workforce. Have you heard of Riley Guide? “It is primarily intended to provide instruction for job seekers on how to use the Internet to their best advantage, but recruiters and other career service industry professional will find information here to help them also.”
Interestingly, you can also find resources for ex-offenders who are looking to return to the workforce.
Here is a quick video of the recent workshop:
