Find Your Dream Job

Are you ready to stretch your wings in your professional life?  Are you still looking for a job and starting to get frustrated?  Join us for Dream Job month at the Maud Marks Library!  Dream Job month runs April 15- May 19th as we offer various types of assistance to our customers in "job search mode".  

We have a preview of our month beginning right now with our job search display which can be found right as you walk in the library's doors.  Our display contains many books on resumes, interviewing, and the entire job search process.

Then, we begin on Tuesday, April 15th at 7 PM with the City of Houston Office of Business Opportunity.  They will be at the Maud Marks Library to take our customers through all the steps needed to start their own business.  Why work for others when you can work for yourself.  (Don't worry if you can't make it that night, we'll have more opportunities later.)
