Columbus Libraries Lend Help To Job Seekers

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services says 641,000 Ohioans are unemployed and actively seeking work. In Central Ohio, some of those thousands have turned to local libraries to get job search help.

Several libraries hosted a "job help" day to show job seekers how to build a resume, make a good impression, and show ways to use the latest computer tools to snag the ultimate job.
