Looking for work? Try these

Today's students in the Job Hunting Skills computer class had these comments: "Presenter was really knowledgeable with respect to material and this helps motivation" "I was impressed with the up-to-date information presented and the long list of electronic resources, internet links from NOVA's website, ReferenceUSA and using O*Net for adding keywords to my resume. Very helpful Thank you!"

What a great class. Students shared their favorite job search websites and a student demonstrated using RSS feeds. We watched a video about Work2Future services, explored NOVA's website for training opportunities, learned about books in the library, visited and, saw where to upload a resume to Brainfuse for a free review from a career professional and tried ReferenceUSA for researching a company and finding electricians in a specific geographical area.
