Workforce Literacy: Supporting Job Seekers in Your Community
A webinar exploring ways libraries of all sizes can provide services and support for job seekers in their communities.
This event has passed.
As job seekers of all kinds continue to come to the library for resources and support, libraries continue to find new ways to respond to this essential community need. Workforce literacy impacts a variety of patrons, including ex-offenders reentering the workforce, small businesses looking to grow, young first time job seekers, military personnel and veterans, and older adults seeking new skills to stay in the workforce. Work SC brings a comprehensive, yet accessible, set of tools to South Carolina residents through the State Library, and Jason played no small part in making it happen. Find out how your library, large or small, can adapt these service models and partnerships to provide the resources and support your local community needs to thrive in today’s workforce.
Presented by: Jason Broughton, Outreach Coordinator, South Carolina State Library, and 2015 Library Journal Mover & Shaker
