CobbWorks Mobile Career Center
The CobbWorks Mobile Career Center, a free job resource, will be available at selected Cobb County Public Library System (CCPLS) branches in a partnership with CobbWorks to make job-hunting tools accessible to community members. The portable facility is a converted bus filled, not with seats, but with 12 computer stations. One can complete an online job search, resume and a cover letter at the station. The computers also have Internet access via satellite, which allows the opportunity for people to conduct searches for local, state and national jobs.
CobbWorks staff can help individuals plan job searches, apply for jobs on-line, create resumes and cover letters and answer career-development questions. Visitors to the mobile career center can continue their work inside libraries where they can access newspaper classifieds, sign up to use computers in the library, and check out the latest books on job hunting and career management. Services are free at the library and printing is available from computers and copying machines for a nominal charge. Attendees should bring a flash drive to save their work.
Computer usage at the mobile career center is unlimited for the duration of the visit unless there is a line to use the computers. In that case, customers are limited to one-hour sessions. The bus is wheelchair-accessible. Services at the CobbWorks Mobile Career Center are provided on a first-come, first-serve basis. For more information on CobbWorks or the services they provide, please visit www.cobbworks.org.
