WorkForce West Virginia has received a Recovery Act Grant to enhance and expand public use computers, connection speeds and wireless capabilities at WorkForce West Virginia offices statewide. The grant also allowed for computers to be placed at public libraries and National Guard armories across West Virginia.
The Philippi Public Library was a recipient of three WorkForce West Virginia computers fully loaded with programs to benefit their patrons. These computers arrived installed with the WinWay Resume program, keyboarding skills program Mavis Beacon, Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and a Merriam-Webster's Reference Library program.
At 3 p.m. today, the Philippi Public Library will host Resume Writing and Job Search Class. Ellen Prehoda of WorkForce West Virginia will be at the library to conduct a class about the WinWay Resume program. Prehoda conducts weekly resume workshops in her home office and prepares/critiques resumes on a daily basis for local jobseekers and unemployment claimants. Participants should bring a list containing their complete work history with dates, educational history and any certifications or licenses. Class size is limited; call the library to register or for more information at 304-457-3495.
