NEW Career & Employment Resources Research Guide

Rutgers students or alumni, or community members, who are hunting for a new job now have a multi-faceted tool that can advance their efforts - a new career and employment services research guide on the Libraries website.

The career and employment services research guide covers all the steps of an organized and thorough job search. A section on 'the job search process' allows users to locate resources on topics like 'career exploration, planning, and development,' 'job search strategies' 'resumes and cover letters,' and 'interviews,'; this section also includes links to 27 job posting meta-sites. A section on 'employment opportunities' allows users to investigate 'jobs by location,' 'government jobs,' 'jobs in the nonprofit sector,' 'temporary employment,' and other subjects.

A specialized section on 'library resources' features the unique resources at Kilmer Library, which offer tools on topics like 'job hunting techniques,' 'researching an employer,' 'interviews and negotiation techniques,' and other elements of the job search. Other sections of the research guide focus on 'special populations and situations,' 'thinking about graduate school?,' and resources and opportunities available only to Rutgers students, alumni, faculty, and staff. There are also links to resources on 'women and minority concerns,' relocating and working abroad,' and 'internships and summer jobs.'
