Lots of ways to help job seekers
Boyd County Public Library has some great resources for anyone currently in the market for a new job.
First, you can use it to determine which types of jobs are best suited to your individual skills, and see what types of training, continuing education and exams might be required for that new career path. Job & Career Accelerator has training courses for several computer software programs like Windows 7, Microsoft Word and Excel, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, and many more.
