Five Points West Library to Host Birmingham Career Center Mobile Job Registration Event December 14

Looking for a job? The Five Points West Regional Library, 4812 Avenue W,  will host the Birmingham Career Center's mobile job registration event on Tuesday, December 14, from 1 to 3 p.m.  

Birmingham, Ala. - Continuing a partnership with  the Birmingham Public Library to make finding a job easier, the Birmingham Career Center is hosting  a mobile job registration event next Tuesday, December 14, at the Five Points West Regional Library

Job seekers will be able to register for employment in a data base that lists job openings across the state during the mobile job registration event between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. at the Five Points West Library, 4812 Avenue W. 

The Birmingham Career Center held its first mobile registration event on December 2 at the Central Library in downtown Birmingham. More mobile registration events will be held later across the city. 

"The goal of this type of event is to bring Career Center services to places where people naturally congregate," said Yvette Fields, manager of the Birmingham Career Center , located at 3216 Fourth Avenue South. 

Attendees will be able to sign up on the Alabama Works site, a network where job seekers from government to the private sector and nonprofits can post jobs.  

During the Tuesday, December 14 mobile registration event at the Five Points West Library,  job seekers will receive assistance:

* Registering for Alabama Works , the state's free online jobs jobs database.

* Creating and/or updating resumes. 

* Obtaining information on training and job opportunities.

Although job opportunities are plentiful, especially with the Christmas/New Year's holidays approaching, employers across the state have had difficulty filling positions as the state rebounds from the COVID-19 pandemic.   

The Birmingham Career Center is one of many career centers the Alabama Career Center System has across the state. It is a part of the Employment Services Division of the Alabama Department of Labor.
