STRATFORD, Conn. -- Helping low-wage workers and job-seekers find better paying or new employment is the goal of the CT Career Coach effort that is offered through the Stratford Library.
Due to the program's popular demand, the library said that the program, a career center on wheels designed to deliver career services and training opportunities at a variety of locations throughout Connecticut, will continue library visits through 2015.
The 2015 schedule is: Nov. 30 and Dec. 21 at the Stratford Library, 2203 Main St. from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each Monday.
The Career Coach delivers free services to low-wage workers and job seekers in Southwestern Connecticut who are unable to get the services at local career centers due to lack of transportation, childcare or employment schedules.
The coach offers 10 computer workstations, high speed access to the internet, 42-inch plasma TV with Smartboard overlay (for training use by the instructor), 10 wireless laptops and exterior plasma TV, interview room and an ADA-compliant lift and workstation for people with disabilities.
The workshops are free and open to job seekers 16 year of age or older. Basic computer skills are helpful but not required. First come, first served.
For information, call the library's Adult Services Department at 203-385-4164 or visit: www.stratfordlibrary.org.
