The class on Feb. 21 will be on basic job searching. Students will be introduced to various online databases for job searching. Those interested in filing resumes or checking out job vacancies locally or regionally may attend this class.
Classes start at 4 p.m. and last for three hours. All classes are free and limited to 10 students. Students need a basic knowledge of how to use the computer.
