Copper Basin area residents seeking employment were given a boost last week with the launching of a Job Search Access Point at the Kearny Library courtesy of the Gila/Pinal County Workforce Consortium.

Access points are partnerships with community and faith-based organizations across Gila and Pinal Counties that create places where people can go to look for jobs and connect to a One-Stop site. Job seekers will have access to a computer designated for this at all times and can search for employment opportunities state wide.

Kearny librarians will also be trained to help with job applications, resumes and how to approach interviews and will be available during open hours.

Call the library at 520-363-5861 for more information.
