Speaker: Tara Lannen-Stanton, BTOP Coordinator, Queens Library

In a tough economy and labor market, many libraries have gone beyond basic job search help to provide more extensive services for job search training, from resume building to interview preparation and mock interviews. Queens Library expanded job search training beyond that to provide in-person and online career specific training opportunities that help library customers to be more competitive in a tight labor market. This has included online training and free testing for certification for software like Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suites and QuickBooks and for career certifications such as Six Sigma, Project Management and Human Resources as well as in-person training for construction, food safety and entry-level healthcare careers. Queens Library staff will discuss the logical progression from resume help to career-specific training and lead a discussion on what might work in libraries of all sizes serving diverse populations.
