Sno-Isle Libraries offers new online service for job seekers

The free, one-on-one job-search program is for anyone looking for work or a career change.

After you’ve checked out a book or a movie, check out a new job. Sno-Isle Libraries is offering a new service for anyone looking for work or a career change.

Sno-Isle has joined with the Seattle Public Library and the King County Library System to offer Your Next Job, a free service for job seekers.

Anyone who lives in the library districts can use the service, and no library card is needed.

The program offers free, one-on-one help with job searches, technology skills and new unemployment claims, and it provides referrals to community groups and social services.

Help is provided through online meetings, email, text messages or phone calls.

“We’re really excited to join this regional partnership in support of job seekers and promoting information literacy skills,” said Emily Felt, adult services coordinator at Sno-Isle Libraries.

“We’re really looking forward to working closely with our neighbors in Seattle and King County to support the economic viability of our region as a whole,” Felt said.

The Seattle Public Library’s website serves as the entry portal. To log on, go to spl.org/YourNextJob.

Services can also be reached by calling 206-386-4636 or emailing jobhelp@spl.org.

The program is also available for speakers of Amharic, Arabic, Chinese, English, Korean, Oromo, Russian, Somali, Spanish, Tigrinya and Vietnamese. For Spanish, go to spl.org/SuProximoTrabajo. For simplified Chinese, go to spl.org/YourNextJob-zh.

All three library systems offer online proctoring and certification in Microsoft and Abobe software programs. Sno-Isle Libraries also offers online proctoring and certification for Quickbooks.

Your Next Job services are available Monday through Saturday.
