Instead, please consider visiting the My Networking Central website. This site fills multiple needs:

-Connects job seekers with job search groups and career development opportunities

-Provides employers with individuals seeking work

-Establishes a place for public libraries and business, economic, and workforce development groups to post their events and meetings

The New Jersey State Library and Main Library Alliance thank you for using the L2B website. The needs of New Jersey’s residents have changed as together we navigate exiting the COVID-19 pandemic together and establishing a new normal. Have a wonderful day.
