Public Libraries are valuable to Job Seekers

Public Libraries around the US are improving their services to job seekers. Not only do they have amazing databases and publications - some available from home - but they also have seminars, networking meetings, and a few even have professional career coaches. All of this is available at no cost at all. While the New York Public Library is fantastic, so is Fresno, and Piscataway!

Librarians are eager to help. Many have skills they rarely use, and love to show off what they can find out. I know people who have received company and market profiles as well as introductions to local experts. Most people are not fully aware of the capabilities on offer.
