California State Library awarded Monrovia Public Library a grant to develop a Job and Career Center providing a valuable resource to the community. The job center provides a dedicated workstation for job searching, completing job applications, and filing for unemployment benefits, resume writing and test preparation. The workstation supports Microsoft Office 2007, resume software and online services (Cengage Learning’s Career Transitions, Testing and Education Reference Center, and Career E-Books; and Brainfuse’s JobNow, Business Soft-Skills and Hoovers’ Library Solution) to aid job seekers.
The workstation is available during library operating hours. Patrons must have a valid Monrovia Public Library card to use the service. The Adult Services Librarian uses a designated library card to log on to the computer. Job seekers may sign up for one 90 minute session per day. Patrons may sign up on a first-come, first-served basis. No advance or telephone reservations accepted.
