Job Search

Once you've decided on a career path and made strides in obtaining the required training and education, you will be prepared to begin searching for a job that suits you. Job searching skills include:

    How to write a resume and cover letter

    How to network to find job openings

    How to fill out an application

    How to interview successfully for a job

Career planning is an ongoing process. Regardless of your age, it is important to assess where you are if you are to meet your goals and turn your dreams into reality. For example, an unemployed and unskilled worker in transition, with little experience in the workforce, has different needs from a young adult student looking to launch a first-time professional or technical career. An older adult with educational credentials and years of experience, but who has been recently affected by an employer's reorganization, faces a different set of issues. Everyone can benefit from the process of self-assessment, exploring career opportunities, and learning effective, assertive job search strategies that produce results.

This is where your career path begins - learning about yourself, exploring careers, and beginning your job search. Remember, career planning can be a life-long process. Few people stay in one job or on one career path throughout their lives, and you may find yourself completing the process more than once along the way.
