Springfield residents looking to improve their employment skills can find new opportunities at the Springfield Public Library.

Goodwill Industries of Lane & South Coast Counties and Springfield Public Library are teaming up to present ‘Social Media 101’ at 2 p.m., Saturday, February 15 in the Library Meeting Room. Offered as part of the library’s ongoing ‘Please Bother Me’ drop-in program, ‘Social Media 101’ is an introductory overview on how to job search and network using social medias as well as the  do’s and don’ts  of using Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter for job search.

But wait – there’s more!

Springfield residents looking for work or wanting tips on career advancement can sign up for a free one-on-one Goodwill Employment Clinic with a Goodwill Employment specialist. Clinics will be at 4:30 p.m., 5 p.m., 5:30 p.m. or 6 p.m. every third Tuesday of the month at the Springfield Public Library starting February 18. These sessions are designed to help people in all aspects of gaining employment or furthering their careers.

“Libraries have been a hub for career advancement for some time,” said Library Director Emily David. “People come here to update their resumes, look for work, and learn new skills. These employment clinics add a direct way to connect with an employment specialist and work on individual goals.”

To sign up for a clinic, visit the Springfield Public Library Reference Desk or call 541.726.3766.
