COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

If you're a Richland Library regular you may have noticed some new changes on the facility's third floor

The new spaces include rooms specifically designed for job coaches to meet with clients. There is also a mock interview room, modeled to facilitate a real interview atmosphere. 

New spaces also offer open areas for individuals who work from home or on their computer, along with classes that can help individuals develop their small business. 

"A lot of times as a job seeker they're under a lot of stress and anxiety and it's best to be in an area where you feel that you have that privacy, and confidentiality is huge for us,” said career specialist Sylvie Golod. 

Sylvie says the job coaching program has been something the Richland Library has done for a while, but adding these new elements will help job seekers even more.
