Career-Related Resources

By , March 19, 2008 8:10 pm

Irwin Library has a collection of career resources in print and online that can provide you with loads of information to help you make decisions about your future. There are books about jobs in various fields, graduate schools, internships, and even how to write a resume or do well in a job interview.

There are two locations for these materials.

Career Reference

The Career Reference collection is separate from the regular Reference collection, but is in the same room. Specifically, on the right near the computers when you walk into the Reference Department. These are still Reference books, which means they cannot be checked out, but most of the time the books are used for quick reference, so they’re not normally needed in that way.

The Career Collection Online

This is a collection of 100 electronic books that are available for free online through NetLibrary. The books are all in PDF format, so you’ll need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view them. Topics include resume writing, job hunting, interviewing, and more. Just select a book then search within it for a keyword related to what you need to know. Or start at the beginning and read through it like any other book.

If you have any questions, please stop by the Reference Desk or Ask A Librarian.
