Check out the Job Hunting and Career Focused Resources at Your Local Public Library

The Akron Public Library has a tremendous resource for those who are transitioning careers, job hunting or simply honing their interviewing skills. I was blown away by the depth and breadth of these resources.

Although all of these handouts are available on line, it may be worth a trip downstairs to the business section because the library also has books about various industries and career areas. There are computers right there so you can research on line easily too.

It might seem to you that libraries are a thing of the past now that the internet is at your fingertips, but now more than ever we need help in organizing, culling through and finding the most relevant and important information for our specific needs. I'd say that the Akron Public Library's job hunting section did an outstanding job of it! For a close up look at all these handouts, click on Job Shop.
