On September 27, 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m., our Haughville branch location will be hosting the Near West Job Fair, in partnership with the Hawthorne Community Center, to help Hoosiers find employment opportunities. Participating employers include Goodwill Industries, Nelbud Services, IUPUI, EmployIndy, Sunshine Maintenance, Amazon, Job Corp, Cintas, Crown Services, United States Postal Service, and First Student.
In addition, the Career Center at the Haughville branch will be open during the job fair to provide free one-on-one assistance with creating a resume, searching for a career online, or filling out job applications.
Last year, due to the economic impact of Covid-19, Indiana reached its highest unemployment rate since the recession of 1982. Many Hoosiers are still struggling to get back on their feet and find adequate employment opportunities. IndyPL has several free job centers at our branch locations with staff available to assist patrons with resume building, interview prep, proofreading, creating an email, and job searching assistance. For example, our Lawrence location will host monthly job center sessions from September — December. Each session will offer one-on-one assistance to up to four patrons.
