If you need a resume but aren't handy with a computer, you can book an appointment with a librarian for some free one-on-one assistance.
Librarians know how hard it can be to create a new resume, especially for people who aren't comfortable with computers. Using resume writing software, librarians work with individuals to prepare a professional looking resume. The service is free, but an appointment is required.
Stop by the main library's Ask Here desk to schedule an appointment.
