    Out of Work?  Need  Help Refreshing Your Job Searching Skills?

    In September and October, the ACFPL will offer a WALK-IN JOB SKILLS LAB for library members who need help with job- related tasks.  This is not a job fair; it is only refresher tips for your job search.

     Every Wednesday, from 2:00PM – 4:00PM, library members can “walk-in’ and receive assistance with job-related tasks.

    Although library staff members are unable to enter your personal information, we can guide you through the process of searching for jobs on the web, creating an email address, updating your resume, or completing an online employment application.

    This is a free service offered on a first- come first- served basis.
