CareerForce Corners in Local Minnesota Libraries: Job Searching Made Simple
Through local partnerships, Rural MN CEP, CareerForce and the Minnesota Department of Education have extended the services CareerForce officials provide; “CareerForce Corners,” moreover, are the location within the library wherein the resources and services are located. By placing CareerForce Corners within local Minnesota libraries, organizations have made employment information and resources easier to find, and easier to use.
CareerForce Corners within libraries help make the job searching process simpler by supplying written materials, informative brochures, occasional workshops and live support. To many communities, local libraries are a conveniently located, trusted resource. By placing resources typically offered at the CareerForce office within the local library, CareerForce Corners make job searches more accessible. Not only are the libraries in close proximity to the communities they serve, but library staff can also assist workers with their job search.
CareerForce Corners Help Rural Minnesota Job Seekers Find and Use Available Opportunities
The CareerForce Corners provide curated and up-to-date CareerForce resources to help library staff assist job seekers. More specifically, the CareerForce Corners help library staff easily connect with Minnesotans that may need extended support in their job search; once connected, staff can refer them to the additional programs and services available.
