Hammond library hosts Job Ready Service Program


October 12, 2014 – Times Staff

The Hammond Public Library, 564 State St., will host the Job Ready Service Program, a three-week training seminar to educate job seekers on strategic methods to assist them in obtaining employment. Library staff will offer training Monday through Friday, Oct. 13 to 31, in the use of bibliographic resources, as well as instruction on the latest trends in prospective markets.

Those looking for a job are encouraged to register for the three-week seminar. Attending all sessions is necessary because each session builds upon what was presented the week before. Three-part topics include “HPL Can Help, I’m Positive,” “Do You Have What It Takes?” “Researching Your Prospective Employer,” “Resumes and Cover Letters” and “Preparing for Your Interview.”

“We will help you to evaluate your need to improve skills. Then, at the end of the three-week session, we’ll channel you to other governmental service centers that provide resources to help build on these skills,” said Linda Swisher, public information coordinator at the library.

Sessions are planned for 9:30 a.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and 5:30 p.m. Thursdays.

Register by calling (219) 931-5100, ext. 340.
