Will County Executive Larry Walsh said he is happy to welcome the new locations to the schedule.
“The Workforce Services Division always looks for opportunities to partner with libraries because they are often places where residents go for information on finding a job,” he said.
The mobile unit travels throughout Will County to help residents with resume development, cover letters and job applications. The workforce center contains 11 computer stations, internet access, and offers keyboarding lessons, as well as resume and job search assistance using online listings including jobs4people.org and Illinois workNet.
