Job-Hunting Resources!

Join us at the first meeting of the Job-Hunting Networking Group. We will be meeting on Monday, February 9 at 10:30. Learn about community groups and resources that can help you find a job. This isn't a job fair, but a place for like-minded individuals looking to network, share tips and learn how to land that perfect job.

Our first speaker is Michelle Cole, Senior Director of the Basic Skills Program at Randolph Community College. Michelle will talk about community resources available from RCC.

Everyone is invited. Meetings will be held bi-monthly at the Library. Call us at 431-3811 or e-mail me for more information.

We have added more job-hunting books to the library collection!

I wrote an article for the January 29, 2009 Archdale-Trinity News about the resources available from the library for help with job-hunting, financial aid and learning new skill sets (including G.E.D.). You can find most of them by visiting the library's website:
