Career Tip of the Month: View the New On-Line Job Search Videos and other Great Resources

Is anyone feeling a little nervous about looking for a job right now? You’re not alone! Our good friends at Career Services have a range of resources to help you in that process – some of which are brand new this year. Check them out!

  1. There’s a new series of short, web-based videos related to the job search process that just might help you feel more prepared. Find them at http://www.uwgb.edu/careers/ (click on the CareerSpots.com link). 
  2. Many of you are probably familiar with PRO (http://www.uwgb.edu/careers/PROstudents.htm) and using it to look for jobs or internships, but did you know it also contains two great resources for learning more about careers in different fields (descriptions, salaries, industry profiles, etc.), international career opportunities, and U.S. cities where you might be looking for jobs? You can access Facts on File (national database of career information) and Going Global (international opportunities, city guides, etc.) by logging into the PRO system.
  3. Career Services has a range of FREE workshop offerings on creating resumes, interviewing, and applying to graduate school (see http://www.uwgb.edu/careers/Programs.htm#Calendar for a full schedule). Some of them are scheduled for September, so don’t miss out!
