Free Career Assistance at the Library from Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development

1st and 3rd Fridays, 1pm-4 pm

** Please note -- There is no DWD assistance at our library in December.  The Mount Horeb Public Library is excited to partner with the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development to offer one-on-one assistance with job searching, resume writing, interview skills and more! Jennifer Seese, DWD, will be at the library the first and third Fridays of the month from 1 pm - 4 pm.  Some Fridays will feature a program followed by personal assistance, other Fridays will be all one-on-one appointments. Community members are invited to stop in the library during these times to receive help with their specific career development needs.  The meeting times are first come, first served, or by appointment by calling the library Help Desk at 437-5021.  Anyone looking for help with their career is encouraged to take part.
