Looking for Work? Library Offers Resources and a Job Club

If you're looking for work, the Library offers a number of resources and services that can help you in your search. We've also just begun the third season of our popular Job Club; anyone currently looking for employment is welcome to join.

The Library will conduct online Job Club sessions on topics ranging from finding your ideal career to tweaking your resume. The club meetings will be hosted by Rhiannon Johnson, the Library’s Career Development and Personal Finance Specialist; she regularly provides patrons with coaching on career development topics including resumes, cover letters, career transitions, job searching and interviewing techniques.
