Employment Opportunities Expo 2015

The Cleve J. Fredricksen Library is pleased to announce its flagship Employment event, the Employment Opportunities Expo, to be held on Friday, May 1, 2015, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This Expo, the first of its kind in the Cumberland County Library System, is an opportunity for the participants to utilize the library and community resources to assist in overcoming the obstacles to obtaining gainful and enduring employment.

The Employment Opportunities Expo will open at 10:00 a.m. with a Keynote Address from our special guest, Kathy Silks, Project Manager for PA Forward, and representative of the Pennsylvania Library Association.

During the Expo, there will be many opportunities for participants to obtain information and assistance from community sources, local agencies and library staff.  We will be conducting workshops throughout the day to introduce and enhance skills necessary for obtaining employment, such as basic internet navigation, creating an email address, resume-building tips, completing an online job application and improving interviewing skills.

Local agencies will be on hand throughout the building with information and assistance to help patrons connect with service providers, essential to overcoming personal obstacles on the path to employment. Service providers invited include Dress for Success, SCORE, Experience Works, Inc., AARP Foundation SCSEP, Cumberland/Perry Drug and Alcohol Commission, Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, PA CareerLink (which includes services for Veterans), UCP, Tri-County OIC and the Employment Skills Center.

There will also be representatives from local colleges and career schools, who can offer information on how to choose a career, plan for an alternate career, further your education, or assist in finding sources of funding to start the educational process.

Finally, the Employment Opportunities Expo will offer a Career Fair within the Expo, which will include a collection of businesses and staffing agencies from the local area, and all will have a representative on hand to fit the right person to their long list of available jobs.
