Preparing to look for a job? OMJ can help

Local residents seeking employment can receive free help using website tools and resources, creating a resume and preparing for an interview by attending free workshops over the next few weeks at the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.

OhioMeansJobs Cincinnati-Hamilton County is continuing its Work Readiness Workshop Series this fall and will offer three different workshops at the library’s Mount Healthy branch, 7608 Hamilton Ave., Cincinnati, Ohio, 45231. The workshops are 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:

  • Oct. 31 at 11 a.m.: The first workshop will focus on how to make an OhioMeansJobs Backpack account that gives attendees access to different job-search tools and resources. Participants will also learn how to navigate the OhioMeansJobs website.
  • Nov. 7 at 11 a.m.: “Résumé Boot Camp” will focus on how to structure and write a resume that can be uploaded to the OhioMeansJobs website.
  • Nov. 14: 11 a.m.: Attendees will practice interviewing with mock interviews with a focus on behavioral and situational interview questions.

This is the second set of workshops. The original workshops were held in the fall of 2016. They will  continue in the spring of 2018 at different library branches.

Space is limited, so interested participants should register in person at the Mt. Healthy library at their earliest convenience. For more information, please contact Natalie Hemmer at (513) 946-7261 or
