Digital Age Job Seekers Series

Our last session in this series is this Thursday at 9:30 am and 5:30 pm in the Main branch's second floor events room. It will cover how to master the job interview and how to "dress for success!"

Although the classes in this series are designed for middle career job seekers, and those using online resources for the first time in their job search, all career levels can benefit from the course material. The first 5 sessions in the series will be taught in the Computer Training Center. Please call 256-532-2356 to reserve a space each class.
