CareerTransitions is a new electronic resource available via the library's website. You can use CareerTransitions to discover your interests, explore careers, prepare your resume, improve your chances of obtaining a job, and find current job openings. To use CareerTransitions go to our Electronic Resources page and select it from the QuickList drop-down menu. Once you are on the CareerTransitions home page, begin by creating your own personal account.

You can then begin with the job trait assessment module, Discover My Interests, and work through each of the five modules. If you prefer, you can just jump right in and use a single module. If for example you would like to find current job openings, go right to the Find Jobs module.

If you would like to explore our other electronic resources for the job seeker, please - go to the Jobs and Careers section of our Electronic Resources page. Here you will find Brainfuse, Learning Express Library, and other resources.

If you need assistance writing your resume, you can receive advice from Brainfuse tutors online. Visit the Adult Learning Center section of Brainfuse to communicate with a tutor.

Learning Express Library
is another resource which can help in your job search. The Job Search & Workplace Skills Learning Center offers online courses for learning job searching techniques, writing resumes and cover letters, and learning how to prepare for a job interview.

If you would prefer using books rather than electronic resources, we have books on creating resumes, job hunting, and interviewing. You will find these books under the call number 650.14 on the second floor. If you need assistance locating these books, please - ask library staff at the Reference Desk or Information Desk.
