Jobs program starts at Delaware libraries

The first of four Jobs centers in Delaware opens today at the Dover Public Library.

The centers are designed to help job seekers and those looking to change careers with advice from job coaches. That help will include assistance crafting a resume, writing cover letters and identifying job openings posted online. The centers will also help residents prepare for the GED and certification exams. The program is funded by a $1.9 million federal grant from the National Technology Information Administration and a $900,000 grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. While the Dover center opens today, similar programs in Georgetown, Seaford and Wilmington will open soon.
