Looking for a Job?
September 06, 2012
Listening to the news this morning, I was once again reminded of the unfortunate individuals that have been laid off or those that have lost their jobs in some way. With Missouri’s unemployment rate at 7.2, I wondered how we stacked up against the other states. I found out that we are about in the middle. There are also those young people that have graduated from high school or college with the dreams of that perfect job. They, too, are entering the work force, but are unable to find employment.
With this in mind, I started looking so see what resources MCPL offered that would assist these individuals. Besides books, we offer career assessments in the Research Databases, online classes through ed2go, and online books in Safari Books.
Listed below are a few of the resources that MCPL provides.
Job Rights & Survival Strategies : a Handbook for Terminated Employees by Paul H. Tobias
Don’t forget, you can find eBooks on this subject as well!
