Both networking sessions are part of the Library’s ongoing Job Club which meets on the first and third Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m. at the Fishersville Library at 1759 Jefferson Hwy.  Job Club helps people prepare for employment or to look for a new job. Each meeting includes a program on topics such as skills assessment, mastering interviews or getting the most out of a job fair.

In less than six months, the Job Club already has a proven record of helping people find employment. One recent participant noted, “The Job Club has provided valuable insights into the job search process.”
