Thursday – Nov 15, 2018 “Encore Career Search Strategies: Help Your Patrons Find Their Way to Meaningful Work”
As library staff it can be very rewarding to help your patrons on the challenging path of (re)entering the job market as a “mature worker.” We can help older patrons compete successfully for jobs by steering them toward resources that match their needs, and by helping them find (economical) ways to develop new job search skill. This webinar will give you information and resources to help patrons bridge the gap in knowledge and skills.
