The State Library of Ohio is pleased to announce that the State Library Board recently approved a $75,000 IMLS LSTA grant to expand the LearningExpress Library service to include a new Job and Career Accelerator section starting January 2010. The LearningExpress Job & Career Accelerator™ provides personalized, step-by-step job search assistance for all levels of job seekers. Job seekers can explore suitable occupations from over 1,000 detailed occupation profiles and find available jobs in their area from a database of over 5 million up-to-date job postings. With Job & Career Accelerator, users can easily create professional targeted resumes, master interviewing techniques, improve work related skills and prepare for occupation-related exams. In addition, it helps job seekers plan, tailor, and track multiple job searches at the same time while providing expert advice and tips each step of the way.
In order to become more familiar with Job & Career Accelerator, LearningExpress created a special trial site for the Ohio library community. Accounts created on this special trail site will be active until January 2010 at which time, the new service will be made available to all residents of Ohio accessible through the State Library of Ohio’s subscription to LearningExpress Library.
You will find more information and a Pre-Launch guide on WebJunction Ohio. Additional information and resources about the Job and Career Accelerator, including opportunities to participate in online trainings, will be available soon.Tags: Job seekers, learning express, learningexpress
