All the resources you need for a successful job search are at your fingertips and completely FREE at your public library. In this comprehensive yet skimmable guide, you ll discover a wealth of library resources that will turbo-boost your job search.

Your library can provide much more than books and reference guides. You have automatic access to:

  • powerful business and career databases you can search for employers, or mine for resume keywords
  • already-compiled Web resources that can save you time and effort
  • software to hone your job skills, including expensive test-prep programs for the GED and more, plus training software you can use to gain marketable skills
  • librarian-experts and volunteers who can help you with advice through classes or one-on-one counseling.
These days, libraries have stepped up their job-search resources, and are offering more help than ever before. With this book in hand, you can head to your local library to thoroughly research the job market, search for jobs, craft a winning resume and cover letter, hone your interview skills, get the scoop on prospective employers, and even learn to negotiate the best possible pay and benefits when you get an offer.

Most people don't realize all the services and materials that their library offers you ll find much more valuable, reliable information than even the most in-depth Internet research can net. Plus, you don t have to invest in buying books, signing up with expensive job-search services, or paying for classes...all you need is a library card!

About the Author:

Founded in 1879, the mission of the American Library Association is to provide leadership for the development, promotion, and improvement of library and information services and the profession of librarianship in order to enhance learning and ensure access to information for all.

Review:

Patrons will enjoy these simple but well-organized tools addressing that audience of novices who need help navigating the career or scholarship resources of their public libraries ... These books should be in every public library, and, given the cost, in high school libraries as well. Full disclosure: I m going to recommend them to our College Success course faculty as potential textbooks. --Catholic Library World
