From the Series: Nibbles of Knowledge
September 20, 2021
This training consists of 10 short videos -less than 10 min each- a handout, and a certificate
If you asked the people in your community what comes to mind when they think of your library, many might say “a resource for our community.” What better resource could you be than for those who have recently (or not so recently) been laid off – or for those who fear they soon will be?
We will discuss what resources we already have in our libraries that might benefit those looking for jobs, as well as what “out-of-the-box” thinking might contribute to helping others become employed. We’ll also look at ways we can partner with others in our communities to reach out and provide jobseekers with every available tool to aid them in their search.
And of course, we’ll delve deeply into how to handle the result of a good resume – the interview. We will discuss what to include in our answers as well as what not to share and we’ll learn the “best” way to answer one of the most common interview questions: “So tell me a little bit about yourself.”
