As part of its ongoing effort to provide valuable information and services for its patrons, La Vergne Public Library is proud to host the Tennessee Career Coach on January 23, 2013. Located in the library’s parking lot from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., the bus will offer a résumé writing workshop and other job search-related services.
“Although the county’s unemployment rate has dropped in recent months, we still see a lot of people filing for benefits or filling out job applications on the library’s computers,” said Library Director Teresa Wilberscheid. “A well crafted resume can really influence any prospective employer’s first impression of you as a job-seeker. You want it to be an accurate portrayal of your skills and abilities, as well as being attractive and grammatically correct. Therefore, the goal of this workshop is to help as many citizens as possible with this process.”
Open to the public and free of charge, the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development’s Career Coach is a mobile computer lab equipped with 10 laptop workstations and Internet access, as well as a printer, fax machine, and copier.
Pre-registration is not required, but to gain access to the bus and its trained staff, interested parties need two forms of identification – a photo ID and Social Security card are preferred, but school ID cards, birth certificates, permanent resident cards, and passports will also be accepted.
