Job seekers looking for a little extra coaching in their job search will want to take note of a free job readiness seminar series organized by Commissioner Oz Nesbitt in partnership with the Nancy Guinn Memorial Library.

The seminar series will kick off Thursday, March 28, at 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. at the Nancy Guinn Memorial Library, 864 Green Street, Conyers, in the auditorium on the lower level. No registration is required and the public is invited.

"There are so many job seekers, some of who are going to interviews but who are missing the mark. A lot of folks don't know what to say, what to do," said Nesbitt.

The seminars will cover topics such as interview tips and readiness techniques. "Things that will help people increase their chance of finding employment," he said. The first seminar will be a summary of a variety of topics. The seminar in April will cover interview tips and effective communication.

"I run into countless residents who are hurting, who are unemployed or displaced. There are so many broken homes and families due to this economy," he said. "I just want to do something to help."

When he came to the library and spoke with director Daryl Fletcher, he said his idea meshed with the library's desire to outreach to the community.

The seminars will be approximately during the last Thursday of the month, but the final schedule is to be announced.

The Atlanta Regional Workforce Board also has a mobile career lab that stops by the library every other Wednesday. The next date is this Wednesday, March 20, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. Free assistance in career planning, job readiness coaching, access to computer stations, photocopying and printing are available for those age 16 and older.

Other dates of the mobile career lab's visit to the library are: April 3, April 17, May 1, May 15, May 29, June 12, June 26.
