NCRL Offers Free Job Resources This Fall
For the fall, community resource specialists will be offering office hours, targeted toward job seekers, stationed at the Chelan Public Library once a month. The services are available in English and Spanish, no appointment is required and walk ins as welcomed.
"Something we have realized is that is that there is so many wonderful resources offered by community services organizations that are based in Wenatchee, but are trying to provide services to the broader region of North Central Washington," said Amanda Brack, NCRL Adult Services Manager. "The library NCRL is in a unique position to help those community organizations provide services to a broader area because we have 30 library locations."
The specialists are from an array of entities. WorkSource, SkillSource, Wenatchee Valley College and OIC of Washington will have representatives available with guidance of securing jobs, resume reviews and advice on future education endeavours.
"They're encouraging anyone interested in employment, education and training to stop in and check it out," said Brack.
From 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on September 16, October 21, November 18 and December 16, the specialists will be available to assist with guidance of securing jobs and interviews.
This is a pilot program to test the waters, but according to Brack, NCRL is hopeful this can expand with more branches participating and more resource specialists offering services.
