The Library: Your Job Search Research Center
Tuesday, September 14, 2010
7:30 - 9:30PM
The public library can be a most powerful job search tool, for those who find themselves between jobs, thinking of changing jobs, or re-entering the workforce. Library resources, many available online to library cardholders, can save time and energy and turn up important leads and background information. Job seekers are especially invited to attend The Library: Your Job Search Research Center, at Bernards Township Library on Tuesday, September 14.
Ruth Lufkin, Supervising Reference Librarian at Bernards Township Library, will introduce useful library resources and demonstrate ways to mine them for golden opportunities. Tools that make career exploration and transition easier and materials of special interest to job seekers will be showcased. Ruth will describe ways to prospect for information on particular industries, pinpoint potential employers, and dredge for nuggets of company data. Online resources that are available remotely to every library card holder in New Jersey will be highlighted, as well as those specifically available at Bernards Township Library.
The meeting will be held from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m. in the Bernards Township Library Program Room located on the lower level. All are welcome at this FREE program.
