FINAL SOFT SKILLS CLASS SCHEDULED FOR MAY 20
It's Your Career! That's the focus of the final free soft skills sessions offered in partnership by the Blount County Public Library, the Adult Education Foundation of Blount County and the Blount County Chamber of Commerce that are scheduled over the next five months.

But, even though they possess the hard skills to get an interview, it's the important soft skills that will land the job and help them keep it.
All classes are conducted at the library located at 508 N. Cusick in Maryville and limited to 30 participants. Those interested must register online at
. A complete class description is located on the registration site. All classes run from 8-10 a.m. with networking beginning at 7:30 a.m.

PROMOTE YOUR BUSINESS WITH SAVE LOCAL NOW
At the most basic level, buying local ensures that more money stays in our community. In fact, for every $100 spent at a locally-owned store, $45 remains in the local economy. The Blount County Chamber of Commerce encourages all residents to shop small and support our locally owned businesses! Shopping locally provides you with the opportunity to discover something different; it's unlikely that you'll find the same thing at a local store as you would the mall. Save Local Now, the Chamber's "Buy Local" program, highlights and promotes Chamber members and the deals and promotions they create. Locals and tourists alike can download the FREE Save Local Now app to access deals, events and accurate business information. Saving money and buying local has never been easier!
If you have any questions regarding your free digital marketing member benefit (
Save Local Now
), your digital platform, or online marketing in general please reach out the Blount Chamber's
. She is here to help you in the year ahead and will keep you on track as you fulfill your resolutions in 2016.
REMEMBER TO SHOP LOCAL
Think local first + Buy local when you can = Being a local!
Six times as many local jobs are created when spending is directed towards locally owned businesses.
