NEMiss.News Career readiness workshops at Itawamba Library



Free workshops in March, open to the public, focusing on locating and obtaining sustainable employment.


FULTON, Miss.- As the need for digital resource continues, the Itawamba County Pratt Memorial Library is stepping up to provide up to date resources, including new public computers, copiers, and rewiring the building to meet new industry standards and community needs.

To help meet these needs, Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Mississippi donated $14,000 in support of the effort to increase online resources to Itawamba and surrounding counties.

“We are so thankful to the folks at Toyota for providing us with the means needed to modernize the library’s computers and copier and its technological infrastructure as a whole,” said Library Manager Jeffrey Martin. “The technological needs of library users are constantly changing, and we’re always working to find innovative solutions”

Martin plans to use the new technology to offer a series of career readiness workshops hosted by Career Coach Dr. Greg Yarbrough.

The workforce readiness workshops, in partnership with Itawamba Community College, will be held at the Itawamba County Pratt Memorial library on the first three Mondays in March from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM each day. The classes are free and open to the public, focusing on different aspects of locating and obtaining sustainable employment.

The first workshop, held on Monday, March 6, will focus on finding and applying for a job online. Dr. Yarbrough will show attendees how to navigate employment databases, distinguish between legitimate career opportunities and scams, and the dos and don’ts of the application process.

The second workshop will focus on crafting a resume that highlights your strengths and allows you to stand out from the competition.

The final workshop will be held on Monday, March 23, focusing on how to be prepared for the interview process.
