Looking for a Job? Free Help as You Prepare

Local residents seeking employment can receive free help creating a resume, preparing for an interview, learning business etiquette and more by attending free workshops at the Public Library of Hamilton County over the next few weeks.

The library has partnered with OhioMeansJobs Cincinnati-Hamilton County and the Southwest Ohio Region Workforce Investment Board to present a seven-week series of workshops designed to help job candidates prepare for their job search and develop skills that will help them succeed when they do find employment.

The workshops will be held at the Corryville, Westwood and Reading library locations beginning Sept. 13, 2016 and ending on Oct. 24, 2016. Here is the schedule:


  • Reading Branch: Tuesdays 6 p.m. to 7:30 pm
  • Westwood Branch: Thursdays Noon to 1:30 pm
  • Corryville Branch: Thursdays 4 pm to 5:30 pm

The 90-minute workshops will be presented in two parts: the first 45 minutes of each workshop is an interactive lecture, and the second half will be hands on/personalized delivery. The workshops will cover the following subjects:

  • Resume Lab
  • Interview Preparation
  • Career Assessment/e-OMJ registration/Online Applications
  • Business Etiquette

The workshops will cycle throughout the seven-week series in each location with each subject matter offered twice. This provides the community the opportunity to attend every workshop.
