Job Search

Everything (or almost everything) you need to know about jobs, education and careers is in one compact area. The Career Management Center is essentially a miniature library, with circulation and reference sections, as well as some specialty areas. As in the larger library, books marked with the yellow "Reference" sticker or stamped "Reference - Does Not Circulate" may be used only in the library.

Examples of the types of books that are available are: resume, cover letter, interview skills guides, Civil Service exam listings & aids, graduate & professional school entrance exam aids, as well as books on various careers, occupations, etc.

The Career Management Center is staffed by Dawn Rosenberg McKay. She will help you with:

  • Career Assessment
  • Effective Job Search Techniques
  • Defining Career Goals
  • Resume & Cover Letter Guidelines
  • Interviewing & Salary Negotiations
  • Targeting Job Search & Key Employers
  • Personal Effectiveness
  • Coaching Education
  • Choices & Requirements for Careers
  • Job vs. Self-Employment Option

Dawn will offer assistance with all career-related issues including career choice, resume writing, job interviewing and workplace success. She has over two decades of experience helping people navigate their careers. She has worked with them one-on-one in a library setting and has published numerous articles and several books on the topic. Dawn runs the Career Planning site on About.com (http://careerplanning.about.com). She will be here on Tuesday evenings, beginning at 4:30. Please call the Reference Desk at 621-2240, ext. 240 to schedule an appointment.

Please print and fill out a Client Intake Form before your appointment. They are also available at the Reference Desk, so if you can't print it out, please plan on arriving ten minutes prior to your appointment time.

In addition to the Career Center, we also have several databases available to help you with your job search, and a list of internet resources that may also prove to be helpful.
