Resources for Job Seekers

Everyone knows that job hunting can be a frustrating task.  The library is available to make the process a bit easier.

  • Use or public computers to create a resume and cover letter, search for jobs, and complete online applications.
  • Borrow from our large collections of books to help at every step of your job search: from career discovery to interviewing.
  • Try our career databases which can help you create a resume, search for jobs, and practice professional exams.
  • Attend a library event to learn more about different aspects of job searching and get one-on-one resume help.

Each page of this guide includes books, websites, and databases to help with different aspects of job searching.  If you find that I am missing any great resources or if I have neglected any aspect of job searching that could benefit you, please get in touch.

If you have any other questions regarding this guide or your job search, do not hesitate to ask any of the Valley Cottage Librarians.  We are happy to help you find job hunting resources. We are also available to help you feel more comfortable using a computer for your job search.

Best of luck with your job search,

The Valley Cottage Library Team
