The Dayton Metro Library’s second annual Career & Learning Expo brings together informative presenters, professional career coaches, and a vast array of exhibitors, all focused on helping adults explore their career options, enhance their job skills, or position themselves for professional advancement. The event takes place Thursday, October 24, 3:30 - 6:30 p.m. at the Main Library, 215 E. Third Street, and is completely free.
“Whether you’re a young professional who needs additional skills to land a better job, you want to stay relevant in your current workplace, or you’re looking toward an encore career, this Expo is for you,” said Diane Farrell, Director of External Relations and Development for the Dayton Metro Library. “This event will help adults achieve their professional goals with education, training and coaching.”
Presenters and exhibitors will offer a full range of information on education options, from self-directed online learning and micro-certifications, to apprenticeships and specialized training for in-demand careers, to traditional two- and four-year degrees.
“A highlight of The Career & Learning Expo is the opportunity to meet individually with career coaches,” said Ann Riegle-Crichton, Business Services Librarian. “Our Job Seekers volunteers have extensive experience in job searching, career coaching, and assessing your skills and interests.”
