In light of the ever growing unemployment numbers, the Southern Adirondack Library System created a resource to help us guide patrons who come into the library looking for job and resume assistance. The following information was compiled by the Southern Adirondack Library System in March 2009.
The New York State Library Division of Library Development has a great site devoted to information about what public libraries are doing to help job seekers; their webpage also has links to many helpful resources. The Saratoga-Washington-Warren Counties Workforce System has an excellent online resource for job seekers. The site includes information on how to access their regional, statewide and national job listings; a list of job search websites; job fair locations; civil service jobs and much more. This is a very comprehensive resource for job counseling.
You may also need help writing resumes and cover letters. For quick online reference, check out Job Star Central. Another great resource to help with resume writing is SeekingSuccess.com; this site has a nice section devoted to resume wording. Additionally, SALS compiled a resume writing packet.
For additional help with these resources, please ask at the library desk.
