Job Hunting? Look at the Career Resources Subject Guide

With unemployment and underemployment constantly in the news, many people's #1 New Years Resolution is either "get a job" or "get a better job." Even if you're happy where you are, professional development, continuing education, and social networking are vital to your wellbeing and advancement in the workplace.

Like all of our subject guides, the Career Resources Subject Guide is organized by labeled blue tabs going across the top. Under each tab are boxes containing links to information sources that will put you on the path to a healthy paycheck and personal fulfillment through your chosen work. First, look at the advice about choosing and modifying your career path. Then try some of the tips for improving your resume and coverletter and making a great impression in an interview. There are Resources By Field to guide you to job leads in your area. Under Find a Position, you can explore job openings in a variety of online employment classified services.

The Career Resources Subject Guide also features the Vocational and Careers Collection and Ferguson Career Guidance Center, two exceptional resources paid for and made available to Empire State College students for free. Just click on the Search Career Databases tab, click on the database name, and log in with your College login and password.

The Empire State College Library does not offer career advice, placement services, or resume editing. You may be interested in the Empire State College Alumni Career Services page.
