The Florence Community Library will offer back-to-back classes on Wednesday, August 24, from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. A trainer from the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records, a division of the Arizona Secretary of State, will come to the library to show job seekers and entrepreneurs online library resources to help them accomplish their goals.

 

The Job Seeker (1:00 – 2:00 pm)

Are you looking for a better job? Interested in exploring a different career path? Join us for a tour of some sites that can help find the right job for you. Online resources are available to assist you with resume writing, searching for positions, and even learning about new skills you may need to acquire. Paula Wilson, Library Consultant, says, “This class is not for just finding any job, but it is more about finding the right job.”

 

The Entrepreneuer (2:00 – 3:00 pm)

Instead of working for someone else, work for yourself! If you have a product or business, you can use online resources to research target markets, identify clusters, and find out household details about hobbies, interests, and purchase behavior. Learn how to target an industry and geographic market, and zone in on the type of business you want to sell your product or service to. Bring your real-life examples and we can demo it in the class!

 

The web sites highlighted in both classes are a part of the Digital Arizona Library (DAZL), available to all residents of Arizona through their public library website. This project is supported by the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Participants may bring their own laptop or follow along with the instructor. If you choose to bring your own device, please bring your library card and make sure it is in good standing so that you will be able to log in to these resources. If you do not have a card, please come early and bring photo ID and proof of current address, so that library staff can issue you one.

For more information, or to sign up, please contact the library at (520) 868 – 8311.
