Career Coach Bus Visits Blount County Public Library to assist job seekers

Career Coach Bus Visits Blount County Public Library to assist job seekers | Tennessee Libraries | Scoop.it

The Career Coach bus continues a schedule of regular visits to Blount County so that staff members can assist job seekers, one-on-one, with online job searches, job lists from across the state, online job applications, updating or creating résumés and interview skills.


Professional staff will be available to offer individual career assistance for people seeking jobs....


The Career Coach will also visit the library on these dates:
Sat., March 17 (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.);
Tuesday, March 20 (10 a.m. to 7 p.m.);
Sat., April 14 (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.);
Tues., April 17 (10 a.m. to 7 p.m.);
Sat., May 5 (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.);
Thurs., May 17 (10 a.m. to 7 p.m.).

 

The Career Coach is a mobile job resource center which travels to multiple locations, from county to county, to assist people who are looking for jobs. The 35-foot bus has a staff of 3-5 people and six Internet computers so that job seekers can benefit from online job searches, online job applications, job lists, interview assistance and résumé creation or updating.

 

The Career Coach, a project of the Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development, is a valuable added dimension to services that will be welcome news to Tennesseans who do not have a Career Center in proximity to their homes or places of employment. Beginning in April, three new mobile units continue to serve as Career Centers on wheels.

 

Coaches will help jobseekers. “The mobile units serve multiple purposes,” said Lynn Gibbs, coordinator for the Middle Tennessee coach. “Job applicants can register for work and search available openings online.”

 

The Career Coach has computers, copiers, printers and fax machines that people can use free. Staff on board can help create a resumé, search for jobs online, give you the tools you need to find a job right away.
