MOLINE, ILLINOIS (July 30, 2020) — The Moline Foundation and The Moline Public Library are collaborating on Job Search Workshops. With the large number of people on unemployment, the set of six workshops will help with finding a new job. They will be kept to fifteen people to ensure questions can be answered during the 30-minute session and fifteen-minute Q&A period. Each session stands on its own so that participants can attend as many or as few sessions as they'd like.
Hosted by Susan Zelnio, Workforce Development Program Director of the Moline Foundation, with an extensive background in Human Resources, hiring and career coaching. Registration is required but the sessions are free via Zoom: No residency requirements.
