Delaware Libraries have long been a place to find free resources for job seekers and entrepreneurs.
Now, there’s another reason to check out the library as part of your employment search: The Delaware Department of Labor (DOL) just launched Career Services at seven libraries covering all three counties.
Each of the libraries will have the DOL services available to the community once a week for three hours. DOL staff will help jobseekers with resumes, educate them about state and federally funded training programs, help with apprenticeships, and guide people who are newly unemployed through the online unemployment insurance claim application.
The DOL offers career services online and at its offices in Wilmington, Newark, Dover and Georgetown; the new pilot program aims to bring services to people in convenient, comfortable settings using the library’s computer facilities.
- Bear Library (Mondays 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.)
- Seaford Library (Mondays 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.)
- Rt. 9 Library (Mondays 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.)
- Milton Library (Tuesdays 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.)
- Appoquinimink Library (Tuesdays 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.)
- Newark Library (Fridays 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.)
- Dover Public Library (Saturdays 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.)
“Helping people discover services and opportunities as easily and efficiently as possible is our goal and this program is a great example of that,” said DOL Secretary Cerron Cade. “Library patrons will receive assistance with an employment and training specialist who can help them at a place that is location friendly.”-30-
