These videos are all available on our Career Services website.

Federal Government Employment Tips
If you’re looking for a career in the Federal Government, make sure you check out all of the Career Guide articles we have to offer.

Other articles include tips and guides to federal resumes, how to make a difference in the federal field, student programs and internships, and a guide to student loan repayments.
Job Search and Interview Tips
With fourteen million people unemployed and five people competing for each job opening, forty-four percent of the jobless have been unemployed for twenty weeks or more—and some have been unemployed for two years. With all the bad news about the job market, you might think there was no hiring activity at all. Despite all of the bad news, there IS a lot of hiring going on. However, employers are being very careful about who they chose to fill their positions. This resource links to a PDF of ‘favorite interviewing questions from human resource professionals’. Does this count as cheating? Of course not! Print this off and make sure you feel really comfortable answering all these questions before your interview. If you can answer these questions with poise and thoughtfulness you will be sure to impress your interviewer and break out of the 44%.
Job outlook for new graduates updated every academic year
This is my favorite feature in the resource library. The National Association of Colleges and Employers produces a comprehensive list of the top 10 degrees in demand for that year as well as the specific industries and majors looking for those people. It then breaks it down further by telling us what exactly those employers are looking for in a candidate and how they will rate you in an interview. It’s never been easier to come prepared for an interview with this resource at your fingertips.
