During the survey, 23% of our patrons using the public computers/wifi did so for employment purposes. 12% of them applied for a job using our computers and other online resources. 58% of those patrons received an interview and 42% were hired!

In addition to books about resumes, interviewing, and career opportunities, we have several resources to assist you during your job hunt.
