Job Counseling Program

Erika L. Greene

Lake County Library System (LCLS) and Goodwill Industries of Central Florida, Inc. Job Center continue to collaborate to offer a Job Counseling program at local libraries. As expected, the response was overwhelming and the program is now available in 8 Lake County Libraries!

The goal of the Job Counseling program is to help individuals discover their strengths, market their skills and abilities to employers, develop a resume, learn effective interview skills, and use the internet to find jobs. The job counselor is available to provide information, support, and guidance for individuals looking to get into the job market for the first time or re-invent themselves after having been laid off.

In additon to one-to-one appointments, workshops are also being offered at some locations!

Need help finding a job now? Eight Lake County Libraries are offering free meetings with job counselors. Contact the library of your choice to find out when job counseling programs are available!
