Job Seekers

Get one-on-one Job Coaching

Are you looking for a job? Feeling a bit rusty on your interview skills or bewildered by all the new technology a successful job search demands? We can help.

We offer one-on-one job coaching at many of our libraries. Our skilled and experienced volunteer coaches can help you:

  • Write a better resume.
  • Ace your interview.
  • Search online job listings.
  • Create a free email address.
  • Answer your questions about the job search process.

How to enroll:
  • Sessions last a half hour to one hour.
  • Appointments are encouraged and can be made at the service desk of the library branch, or by calling the Sacramento Public Library telephone reference line at 916-264-2920.
  • Some branches allow appointments to be made online by going to our Events page and searching “job coach” for the branch nearest you.
  • Please bring a current resume if you have one, either a paper copy or on a cloud based storage site (google docs, onedrive, dropbox, etc.).
