The pandemic has left a lot of people unemployed. If you or someone you know is looking for a new job, the Grand Rapids Public Library is offering a new service that could help.

GRPL has launched a Remote Resume Review Service, Fox 17 reports. Trained library staff will review your resume and give you tips to improve content, format, and effectiveness.

Steven Assarian, the library’s business and career librarian said,

"Job-seeking is difficult when there’s not a worldwide pandemic. It makes us vulnerable, and it’s a process that’s difficult to navigate well. That’s why we created our Remote Resume Review service. We want to ensure our patrons get the help they need, especially those who’ve been impacted by COVID-19. With this service, we can help our patrons put their best foot forward and be primed for success while staying safe and healthy.”

You can submit your resume online here. According to GRPL, a review may take up to two weeks.

GRPL also offers one-on-one career consultations through its Small Business Resource Center.
