Spark Your Success!

Spend a few hours with the Public Libraries of Saginaw so we can provide you with assistance on resume writing, the right interview skills, appropriate dress attire and the do’s and don’ts of social media etiquette.  Selected organizations will be on hand to inform you about the many job, volunteer, and career opportunities that are available to you in the Saginaw area.  You may also bring a draft of your resume, cover letters or job applications, so the Saginaw Community Writing Center from SVSU may assist you.

The seminar will wrap up with a “get motivated” presentation that will further challenge you to “Spark Your Success!”  You’ll leave feeling educated and prepared to apply and interview for that first job.  Students 15 to 21 years of age are encouraged to register and attend by calling 799-9160.

Join us for May's Urban Grind Book Club as we discuss, The Game That Played Us, by M. Skye. Money ain't everything...Jeremiah Bentley thought selling drugs was his only option, until he lost his girlfriend, Kaila, to the messy world under the leadership of a madam named Calypso, who owned the prostitute and drug game. Changing his life, in an attempt at redemption, Jeremiah took Ashley. However, in order to heal fully, he had to return to the place where it all began.  Bring your lunch if you like and be ready for a lively discussion. Refreshments served.
