Lost your job? Thinking about switching careers? The Talbot County Free Library wants to help you find the sort of work you're looking for.
To begin with, we've put together a list of links to organizations offering specific resources to aid you in your search. (To be listed as a link here, an organization must provide its services free of charge. Please let us know if you are dissatisfied in any way with the service you receive from any of the organizations listed as links on this page.) Clicking on any organization's link in the list below will take you to that organization's website.
(If at any time you would like to leave the site you have entered and return to this page, just click on the reverse arrows on the upper left-hand side of this page, or click on the little picture of a house in the gray border above this space and that will take you back to the library's home page.)
