Job Search Resources
What you can do
We have the resources you need to find that first job, make a career change, polish that resume, or get that degree. And if you’re an absolute beginner who needs to learn how to use a computer to improve your job prospects, we have a solution for that, too.
There are several computers available in the lab for internet access and word processing. These computers are not on a time limit and are strictly for your job search and academic needs.
To see what we have, search our library catalog, come in and browse through our Jobs & Careers and School Skills Review sections on the Library’s second floor or call the Library reference desk at 333-6640 ext. 4.
