Job-hunters can learn about a special online resource, Job & Career Accelerator™, available through Fort Bend County Libraries, at an introductory demonstration on Thursday, March 6, beginning at 10:00 am, in the Computer Lab at the Sienna Branch Library. The program will be repeated on Wednesday, March 12, beginning at 7:00 pm, in the Conference Room at the First Colony Branch Library.
Staff from the library’s Adult Services department will provide an overview and demonstration of this easy-to-use online resource for job-hunters who are searching for the right job or a new career. Job & Career Accelerator helps job-hunters create professional resumés and cover letters, get detailed and current information on a variety of occupations, match personal interests and skills with a desired career, improve interviewing skills, and much more. The database includes detailed information on more than 1,000 different occupations, and matches interests and skills with possible careers. It also provides more than five million up-to-the-minute local and national job postings.
The Job & Career Accelerator resource can be accessed remotely at any time of the day or night from a home computer with an Internet connection. A library card barcode number is required to use this resource outside of the library.
The class is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, however, and reservations are required.
