Spring often represents a time of revitalization; we renovate our homes with an improvement project, spring clean or restore a garden after a harsh winter. While we focus on our homes and gardens, we should also focus on ourselves.
One way to focus on you is to look toward bettering your career or starting a career. Central Susquehanna Opportunities, Inc. recently opened an employment resource center.
