In these unprecedented times of layoffs and furloughs, job seekers and workers are looking for ways to ensure employability and evolve their career paths. But many don’t know where to start.

According to Strada Center for Consumer Insights, only 35 percent of Americans say they have access to the education and training needed to upskill, reskill, or make a change..1 How can your library provide patrons with professional development and programming resources to feel confident about their career futures? 

In this webinar, you’ll learn how you can open doors to new career fields and advancement opportunities for patrons. Your colleagues from Enoch Pratt Free Library and Howard County Library System will discuss the convenient career tools they currently use and share their experiences of successfully helping patrons shape their career paths. Now more than ever, libraries of all sizes are essential for patrons navigating the changing job market.
