Career Collections

December 7th, 2009

As you begin your search for an exciting career opportunity, do consult the library’s online guide to Job Hunting on the Internet.

This guide supplies links to resources for helping you prepare your resume and cover letter, tips for networking and interviewing, sources to help you research potential employers and sources for retrieving current job listings—including those opportunities that may not be advertised.

College Library also maintains a Career Collection of more than 1,000 books on writing resumes and cover letters, preparing for interviews, job hunting, and choosing and preparing for a career. This collection is located in the center area of the third floor of College Library.

In addition to College Library’s Career Collection, there are many other career guides to particular fields that can be found in the various libraries. Steenbock Library has career guides in its book stacks that are in keeping with the other collections we support for CALS, SOHE and VetMed. Speak with your librarians for assistance locating these resources OR try using the MadCat catalog, “Words Anywhere” or “Title Words” searches. Example searches may include combining the term (with wildcard) “career?” or “job?” with specific discipline. (For example: career? fashion)
