Discovering jobs using the Internet is the subject of a Career Development Workshop set for 7 p.m. Monday, March 8, at the Kearney Public Library.
The University of Nebraska at Kearney and the Kearney Public Library will cosponsor the workshop titled “The Cyber Job Search.” One in a series of career development workshops being held the second Monday of each month, the program is free and open to the public. Claire McKibben, reference librarian for the Kearney Public Library, will be the workshop presenter.
“The workshop will focus on searching for state and city jobs, federal jobs through America’s Job Bank, security issues, and a look at several major search engines,” McKibben said, adding, “Cyber job searching can be very comprehensive, and even those familiar with it, will learn some helpful hints to further their success.” During the workshop the participants will be able to practice their job searching skills in the Library’s technology lab.
“They will be able to apply the skills learned in the workshop immediately and have the opportunity to ask questions,” she said. ”Learning to use your time wisely will be another focus of the workshop, and is important with any job search. This includes knowing when and where to post your resume and how to research the company’s background.”
McKibben’s credentials include nearly six years as a librarian and an extensive knowledge of search engines.
