Employment and Small Business Resources

As a way to kick off the new “Job Center at the Library”,  a representative from the Missouri Career Center in Kennett will be visiting the library on the last Tuesday of each month from 10 a.m. until noon. This will allow local residents a convenient way to register for benefits and fill out applications for local employment. The Kennett MO Unemployment/ Career Center Office provide individuals seeking employment all the latest tools to find and keep that special job.

Employers also find assistance there in recruiting new employees including a national job listing network, applicant screening, and space in the centers to conduct testing and employment interviews.

Now, these benefits will be available locally and conveniently for our patrons at Caruthersville Public Library each month.
