Do you know how many ways your local library can help you find a job? There are many books with sample resumes, cover letters, letters of recommendation, personal references, and so on. Once you have put together your basic package of information, the library can help you with the next step.
Spencer Public Library offers free access to the worldwide web on Internet computers. These computers also have word processing programs for you to type up and print out, or
save and send your files directly to a prospective employer. Our website, spencerlibrary.com also allows you a direct link to the Learning Express database at www.learnatest.com, which has skill building and job preparation resources. To go along with books and exam materials that you can check out to prepare for the ASVAB, GED, GRE, or FCAT tests, there are sample online tests and practice exercises on the Learning Express website, as well.
Don't feel comfortable with the Internet yet? Need help getting started on that resume in Microsoft Word? Your local library has a professionally-trained staff of friendly librarians, who are there to assist you with any questions or referrals. In addition, the library offers .20 /page b&w copies, as well as faxing services (2.00 for the first page and 1.00 for every page after). Our notary services are FREE. These offerings are especially useful to people who are willing to relocate outside the area to where there is more of a demand for their job skills.
With gas prices as high as they are today, doesn't it make sense to do all (or most!) of your job shopping in one place, where you have all the resources you need to help you? With that in mind, gather up all your paperwork and head over to your local public library and get started now!
