Augusta Library Partners with Rotary Club for Job Skills Training Sessions

Posted: Updated:

The Shenandoah Valley has an unemployment rate of about 5 percent.

The Augusta County Library and the Rotary Club of Augusta are partnering up this spring to help job seekers. Free sessions at the library are available to applicants in the Shenandoah Valley looking to pick up essential skills like interviewing and networking.

Librarians say they see people all the time looking for assistance in creating resumes, cover letters and just advice on how to approach the process.

Meetings will be held Tuesday nights. The program is possible through a grant from the Rotary Club.

"If you've been employed for years and haven't recently been in the job market, looking for a job, then that whole process has changed. A lot of things are online, a lot of traditional practices have adapted to new technologies, and it can be very intimidating,” said Sarah Skrobis, adult services librarian.

Career counselors and employers from the area will be at the meetings to help lead and participate in the events.

The next meeting is a mock interview session where you can gain feedback from executives April 1 at 6 p.m. at the library.
