Library Resources to Help You Land the Job or Internship You Want
Rutgers University Libraries have partnered with University Career Services to offer support for students who are seeking employment either while at school or after graduation. Whatever your goals—putting the finishing touches on your resume, acing your next job interview, finding the perfect internship, or simply learning about the job prospects in a specific industry—we have resources to help.
- The Vault Career Guides are useful, industry and topic specific ebooks that are available for free to the Rutgers community via the Libraries. They cover topics like “Top Internships,” “Top 100 Law Firms,” “Guide to Resumes and Job-Hunting Skills,” “Hedge Fund Jobs,” “Book Publishing Jobs,” “Military Services Jobs,” and much more. To access these valuable guides, please visit http://www.libraries.rutgers.edu/indexes/online_career_library and click Connect. You will then have to setup an account to access the material on Vault.
- Get an objective perspective on how to improve your resume by attending one of our free one-on-one resume critiques from University Career Services. This drop-in service is available Thursdays from 2 to 4 p.m. at Kilmer Library in the Career Collections Room. It is on hiatus during the winter break, but will resume in the spring.
- Also in the Career Collections Room at Kilmer Library, visitors will find an extensive library of employment and career texts to help guide you toward your perfect career.
- Lastly, our business librarians have put together several Careers & Employment LibGuides that offer additional information and resources for job-seekers. These LibGuides will help you to zero in on labor statistics in NJ and the United States; to find tips for career planning, networking, and applying for positions; and to connect with job lists in your field, among other things.
