Meet career coaches to polish up your resume at the Erlanger branch of the Kenton County Library during their Career Expo Thursday.

Career coaches will be on hand to help perfect your resume, craft your elevator pitch, and polish cover letters. Then, 40 companies will be on hand with open positions.

The Career Expo is an annual event hosted by The Kentucky Career Center and The Northern Kentucky Workforce Investment Board. This year is important due to the state’s unemployment insurance changes.

Kentucky’s unemployment insurance is reducing unemployment benefits to 12 from 26 weeks with stricter guidelines starting this year.

Those collecting unemployment must show proof of completing five work search requirements weekly by either applying for or interviewing for three jobs, plus attending a career fair, hiring event or job skills class for the other two requirements.

If you can’t make it to this year’s career expo, the Kenton County Public Library offers monthly career and job services classes. These classes can be applied to work search requirements.

The event takes place on Thursday, Jan. 26 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Kenton County Public Library’s Erlanger branch.
