On the job of helping residents find jobs

The Career Coach is back!


Due to popular demand, the CTWorks Career Coach, a career center on wheels designed to deliver career services and training opportunities at a variety of locations throughout the state, will return to the Stratford Library on a monthly basis beginning at 1:30 p.m., April 4. The Career Coach delivers free services to low-wage workers and job seekers in Southwestern Connecticut who are unable to obtain the services at local career centers due to lack of transportation, lack of childcare or employment schedules.
Visitors to the coach will find computer workshops, 10 computer workstations, high speed access to the Internet (via onboard satellite), 42 inch plasma TV with Smartboard overlay (for training use by the instructor), 10 wireless laptops and exterior plasma TV, interview room and an ADA-compliant lift and workstation for job seekers with disabilities. All sessions are open on a first-come, first-served basis. Special sessions, as noted below in parenthesis, require advance registration in the Adult Services Department of the Stratford Library:
May 2, 10 a.m. -3 p.m. (PC Basics Session, 10 a.m. to noon)
June 6, 10 a.m. -3 p.m. (Word 1 Session, 1-3 p.m.)
July 2, 10 a.m. -3 p.m. (Resume Prep Session, 1-3 p.m.)
Aug. 7, 10 a.m. -3 p.m. (Word 1 Session, 10 a.m. to noon)
