WebJunction is offering a free online seminar on ideas for ways libraries can collaborate with local job centers to provide services to job seekers.
Date: Wednesday, April 20, 2011
Time: 1:00 – 2:00 pm CST
Here’s a description of the 1-hour webinar:
Workforce Centers operate with myriad local, state and federal funding streams to support the unemployed, but not every job seeker qualifies. Learn how this impacts your library patrons and what libraries can do to make better connections for our customers. Representatives from Anoka County, Minnesota will describe how the Job Training Center and the Anoka County Library forged an innovative collaboration to make sure every door is the right door for job seekers.
This webinar is eligible to earn 1 continuing education contact hour.
