— While its new office is being completed at Northgate Mall, the Durham JobLink Career Center is bringing back its mobile unit to provide job referral services in January and part of February in the mall’s cinema parking lot, 1058 West Club Blvd.

The service will be provided from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., Monday through Thursday, from Jan. 3 through Feb. 14. It will not be provided on Jan. 17, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s holiday.

A workshop, "How to Sell Yourself on Paper," will be provided every Tuesday and Thursday in January from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Interested participants may register in advance with the Mobile Unit to reserve their seat.

Durham residents can receive job leads, conduct job searches, and submit online applications at the Durham JobLink Mobile Unit. If applicants are not registered with Durham JobLink, they should come prepared to register since registration is required in order to receive the service.

Residents who need assistance with résumé writing, career search information and assistance with job applications should continue to use the Durham JobLink Career Center at 1105 South Briggs Ave., Durham.

Durham job seekers applying for unemployment insurance benefits should also continue using the Durham JobLink Career Center so that they can obtain staff assistance for other services such as interviewing help, labor market information and career counseling.
