In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the circumstances many people faced with job uncertainty in 2020, and 2021, the Smithton PLD recognized a need for a comprehensive Job Seekers website for our patrons. Patrons can search for new jobs, create the documents they need for the job search and to brush up on necessary skills in today’s world of oftentimes heavy digital work.
Explore the databases below to help you browse newspapers for jobs, craft your resume and cover letter and brush up on your technology skills.
Search local (and national) newspapers for your next job.
Learning and growth at work (and in life!) is a journey and life-long process. The Smithton Public Library is committed to your professional and personal development and is now proud to offer LinkedIn Learning to our patrons!
LinkedIn Learning is an award-winning industry leader in online training, with a digital library of over 6,000 courses covering a wide range of technical, business, software and creative topics.
