In March 2021, the Addison Public Library created its New Job Toolkits, which blended an adapted version of another library’s program called the Take Home Job Fair and the job seeker information we were already offering to patrons. These folders include information on every step of the job search process, from resume templates to interview advice and salary negotiation tips.

In this presentation, we’ll talk about working with community partners to produce the materials for the Toolkits, as well as how we branded and promoted the New Job Toolkits to the community.

All ILA Noon Network webinars are free and recordings will be made available shortly after webinars. Registration for all live webinars is limited to Illinois libraries. Others may view the recordings when they are available.
