  • Your greeter will offer you guidance and information in the Resource Area (including use of the computers for resumes, cover letters and job searching) or they will offer you our One-to-One Employment Services

One-to-One Services include:

  • filling out a registration form

  • Referral to other government programs such as Second Career!
