Virtual Job Seeker and Unemployment Resources
“… I think I’ve just understood something! I’ve got to go to the library!”
-Hermione Granger, “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” by J.K. Rowling
If you have recently experienced a job loss, are attempting to navigate the unemployment process, are looking to explore a new career, are hoping to learn something new, are striving to start your own business, or are in need of research help, your Library is open and available (albeit, sometimes only virtually) to assist you.
A 2020 report by the American Library Association (ALA), stated that “libraries are shown to be on the front lines addressing societal and community challenges.” As we collectively travel through the COVID-19 pandemic, and beyond, your Library and their expert staff are working to collect, organize, and prepare the resources, programs, services, experiences, and more that you need to take your next professional steps.
