Help job seekers at your library — Project Compass SD

Where can your patrons find up-to-date résumé help? What resources help patrons prepare for careers? How can patrons navigate the maze of unemployment benefits?

Answers to these questions and others will be discussed at four-hour in-person trainings at nine sites across the state in early November. Learn about free resources at your fingertips to help job seeking patrons and identify community networking partners. This training will improve your ability to help job seekers define their goals, search and apply for jobs, and increase their job readiness.
