EmployRI.org online career center workshop at Bristol Library

 

March 2, 2012

The RI Department of Labor and Training is partnering with the Office of Library and Information Services to offer a free netWORKri workshop for job seekers at the Rogers Free Public Library, 525 Hope St., Bristol, from 10 a.m. to noon on Thursday, March 8.

The workshop provides job seekers with an online tour of EmployRI.org, the state’s virtual career center. EmployRI.org allows users to search hundreds of area job postings, to build and post résumés for recruiting employers to view, and to research Rhode Island’s in-demand occupations and industries. Registered users can also learn how to set up a virtual recruiter function that screens new job openings according to a user’s unique specifications and then sends the matching job openings directly to the user’s email address.

To register, please call (401) 721-1819. Workshop seating is limited.

The EmployRI.org workshop represents the second workshop that netWORKri has held at the Rogers Free Public Library this year, and is part of the career system’s outreach to area communities. The netWORKri One-Stop Career Centers, located in Pawtucket, Providence, Wakefield, West Warwick and Woonsocket, offer employment services to both job seekers and employers. The centers are managed and operated by the Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training, a netWORKri partner.

Other netWORKri partners include Workforce Solutions of Providence/Cranston; the Workforce Partnership of Greater Rhode Island; the RI Dept. of Education; the RI Dept. of Human Services; the RI Dept. of Elderly Affairs; the RI Dept. of Children, Youth and Families; the RI Dept. of Corrections; the Office of Rehabilitation Services; Goodwill Industries; and SER-Jobs for Progress.
