IMCPL Job Center targets workforce development

The Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library is now providing assistance to chronically unemployed or underemployed people through one-on-one personal support at the Eagle Branch Library, 3325 Lowry Road; Central Library downtown; and four other IMCPL branch locations.

The library is partnering with EmployIndy, a non-profit workforce investment board for Marion County, as well as WorkOne, a local specialist in career counseling and programming, to create neighborhood-level job centers that provide technological training, specialized resources, and educational opportunities for people seeking to enhance their employment skills.

Each Job Center site will have a designated space where participants will have access to resources, equipment, and supplies. These include new laptop computers with Microsoft Suite, wireless Internet access, printers, USB drives, and other computer-related items.

The Job Center at Central Library will be in the Computer Training Lab on the first floor and will be equipped with desktop computers with Microsoft Suite, Internet connections, USB drives, resume paper, and other computer accessories.

Funding for the Job Centers is made possible by The Glick Fund, a fund of Central Indiana Community Foundation, and The Library Fund, a fund of The Indianapolis Foundation, through grants to The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation.

Specific programming at each site will include weekly sessions designed by WorkOne and led by a WorkOne staff member. Sessions will focus on job search strategies, interviewing skills, resume development, and instruction on various computer applications.

Library Computer Lab assistants will be available to assist job seekers with WorkOne online resources and other needs during non-class times.

In addition to the Eagle Branch and Central Library, Job Center sites will be at the College Avenue, East Thirty-Eighth Street, Southport, and Warren branch locations.

No registration is required. Programming will continue through March 2012.
