Job Shop Feedback
If you have participated in the Job Shop, we value your feedback so that we can continue to improve this service. Please take a moment at the end of your Job Shop session to fill out a survey.
We also greatly value information on your job hunting experience and how effective we are in helping you find a job. If you felt we helped you get a job or if we could do more to help you get a job, please let us know!
Are you interested in volunteering? We are currently recruiting volunteers to assist library patrons with job searches, writing resumes, performing mock interviews, and giving career advice. If you volunteer for three or more sessions, we will write you a letter of recommendation to attach to your own resume. For more information, email Sarah McBryde.
