Finding a Job
Finding a job is a skill set in and of itself. The library has guides on careers: what’s required of the job and how to get there. We have books, DVDs, and audio books about interviewing skills and resume writing, and can even lend you books about improving computer skills, which are important for many jobs today. We also have some fabulous online job search tools, courtesy of the Michigan eLibrary.
For professional training or certification which require an entrance exam, in addition to the exam preparation materials found in the library, you can log into LearningExpress Library , also through the Library of Michigan, where, after you have created your account, you can take courses and practice tests on entrance exams from the ASVAB to the CDL..
Or you can do a subject search in our catalog, using terms like:
- Employment interviewing
- Job hunting
- Vocational guidance United States
- Occupations United States
- Job hunting United States
- Employment forecasting United States
- Résumés (Employment)
- Vocational qualifications.
Please check out the Michigan eLibrary Business and Jobs Gateway for a host of great sites that can help in this process.
