On April 17, the State Library sponsored the first Workforce Recovery program. “Helping Job Seekers” was very lively, and the archive link was posted to the listservs.
The second program in this series will be on Thursday, April 26, from 2:00 to 4:00 PM. It will be on the Learning Express Job and Career Accelerator.
The LE trainer, Shana Ashworth, will be covering:
- Tools for basic and advanced job searches
- Creating and uploading resumes and cover letters
- Handling job applications
- Tracking and managing job searches in JCA
- Interview tips
- Exploring occupations
- A brief review of the available tools for professional skills improvement.
Since the LE Job and Career Accelerator is readily available to Kansans through the State Library of Kansas website, Kansas librarians need to be familiar with the extensive resources it can offer. We have had shorter programs on the JCA, but this will be a much more interactive program, offered through the Collaborate training platform. Combined with the “Resources for Job Seekers” that are being shared this month, it will offer a wealth of resources for Kansans who are searching for jobs. And these are people who really need our help.

You may come in after 1:30 to check your equipment.
