Partnering with the Library to Serve More Job-Seekers

Melinda Prunty of Pleasant Ridge works four part-time jobs, a couple of which are downtown. Once or twice each week, she stops into the Downtown Library on her way to work so she can search and apply for a full-time job. She is not confident in her computer skills, so she appreciates the help of Library staff.

When she stopped by earlier this week, Prunty met career coach Vicki Camardo in the TechCenter, part of an ongoing partnership between Cincinnati Works and The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.

Prunty had a lead on a full-time custodial job that pays $17 per hour with full benefits. Camardo, an Advancement Coach at Cincinnati Works, helped her navigate the online application process and ensured that her resume was attached properly.

“I’m learning something today,” Prunty said with a smile. “This is great.”
