Thinking Ahead to the New Year
Even though you are still basking in holiday spirit, you may also want to begin thinking ahead to the New Year and your career and technology goals.
Get 2013 off to a running start by attending Richland Library's monthly Career...Encore! networking and job support group on January 3 at 9:30 in the Auditorium at Main. Focus of the January meeting will be "Career Services at the Job Center."
The Job Center will also be offering a new Lunch and Learn Series beginning at 12:00 p.m. on Thursdays in January. These sessions are designed to help you discover more about technology and how it can actually make your life easier!
