Thank you!

On Friday, February 26, 2010 the Library's Employment Resource Centre's staff hosted a very successful 9th Annual Forum, "The New World of Job Searching" at the Westmount Branch Library.  This year's focus was on the impact that new technologies such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn are having on 21st century job searches, and provided an excellent professional development opportunity for employees from the many agencies in and around London that offer much needed support to job seekers.

On behalf of the ERC staff, I would like to give a big thank you to the Library's board Chair, Jan Lubell, who opened up the morning with a wonderful welcome to our guests.  Also, I thank our guest speakers, Titus Ferguson (Social Media Strategist at rtraction), Chris Kulbaba (Assistant Facilitator at the London Employment Help Centre), and James McCloskey (Central Information Security Officer at the University of Western Ontario).  They shared their extensive expertise and knowledge and I am very pleased to report that they scored very highly with everyone who attended the Forum!

As well I offer a huge thank you to our donors who graciously gave us fantastic gifts that were given away as door prizes.  You are:

Sea Jewels Trading Company (Citi Plaza)
Cotton Ginny (Citi Plaza)

And finally, thank you so much to the staff at the Westmount Branch Library for allowing us the opportunity to host this event in your beautiful library.
