Are you connected to your local Wisconsin Job Center?  Do you provide stellar service to job seekers or career changers in your community?  Come join us and share your success story.

About a month ago, I shared a post about the enthusiastic reception BadgerLink Training Librarian Kara Ripley and I enjoyed when we reached out to our local Wisconsin Job Center.

If you've also made great connections with Job Centers in your area we'd love to have you join us in a panel discussion/presentation at this year's Wisconsin Association of Public Libraries (WAPL) conference. We hope to have a representative from a Department of Workforce Development (DWD) Wisconsin Job Center join creative librarians and staff from the Department of Public Instruction to share a well-rounded, thought-provoking session on forming and nurturing strong partnerships that engage the job seeking and career changing members of the hundreds of Wisconsin communities served by public libraries.

What if you're only getting started and don't have a long history?  Your start-up story may inspire your colleagues to be brave and jump in too.  Please consider sharing your success story along with peers, DWD staff, and folks from Resources for Libraries and Lifelong Learning at the WAPL conference.

If you're game, please contact me, martha.berninger@dpi.wi.gov, Resources for Libraries and Lifelong Learning.
