Workforce Development Specialist Johnathan Davis, City Librarian John Szabo and EWDD Gen Manager Jan Perry promote EWDD Job Portal and Library Card Sign-up Month
EWDD General Manager Jan Perry and City Librarian John Szabo teamed up Wednesday, September 27, 2017 to promote September Library Card Sign-Up Month at the Los Angeles Public Library and cross-promote EWDD’s job portal at the Central Public Library.

More than 330 individuals have signed up for job training services and more than 50 people have found jobs through the job portal since it opened in 2015, while many more have received referrals for the nine WorkSource Centers citywide.

The Central Library Job Portal serves as a mini-WorkSource Center for job seekers at the library while giving a glimpse at the WorkSource Centers throughout Los Angeles.

As September Library Card Sign-Up Month winds down, Jan and John teamed up for a social media opportunity to remind Angelenos that while the #BestCardinLA promotion is coming to an end, @LAEWDD and the Los Angeles Public Library (@LAPublicLibrary) are resources that are available for Angelenos all year-round.
