Since September 2012, The Job Help Center at the Middletown Township Public Library has expanded the assistance it offers those in career transition (including unemployed or underemployed individuals and recent college graduates as well as people re-entering the job market) by working with Neighbors Helping Neighbors (“NnN”), a job search support and networking group founded in January 2011.  The positive results of partnering with NhN have been dramatic.  In fact, at least 12 people attending the Middletown library NhN sessions have landed jobs since the meetings began here at the library.  That’s 12 local people hired in less than 10 months!  This success reflects the vibrant community of job seekers, library staff, and NhN leaders and meeting coordinators who have worked with diligence and optimism to help find work opportunities in the worst job market in decades.
