Job Search Workshop - Helping Your Community Get Back to Work


These free one-day workshops are designed to help libraries respond to the growing demands of job seekers in their communities.  The program will highlight Internet resources, local and state job listings, NC LIVE databases, print materials, and e-books.  The goals of this workshop are to ensure that:

  • Every public library in NC has staff equipped with a working knowledge of multiple job search resources.
  • Library staff will be able to assess where the job seeker is in their job search process and direct them to the appropriate resources.
  • Public library staff believe that providing this type of assistance is part of their job and they are well equipped to help their customers.  They believe that libraries can play an essential role in helping their communities cope with the loss of jobs.
  • Public libraries engage with their local workforce system and connect with the local agencies that provide employment services.


The Job Search Wiki has links to pages that are just beginning to tell the story of how libraries are helping their communities find a job at the library!


The workshops are scheduled at nine public libraries across the state during the month of March. The developers and presenters of the workshop and the Job Search Toolkit are library consultants at the State Library of North Carolina, Library Development SectionThis collaborative effort is brought to library staff by the North Carolina Department of Commerce, North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources and NC LIVE.
