JOB READY SERVICE PROGRAM: HPL is pleased to present the Job Ready Service Program, a three-week training seminar to educate job seekers on strategic methods to assist them in obtaining employment.

Library staff will offer training in the use of bibliographic resources, as well as instruction on the latest trends in prospective markets. The Job Ready Service Program will focus on four major goals:

If you’re looking for a job, we encourage you to register for the three-week seminar.

Then, at the end of the three-week session, we’ll channel you to other centers that provide resources necessary to secure a job and advance your skills.

The next series of programs runs from November 3-21.

Attending all sessions is important because each session builds upon what was presented the week before.
