Resume Writing


After reading the article Downturn Puts New Stresses on Libraries  this week in The New York Times I thought today would be a good time to remind staff about a couple of online resources we have which could help patrons looking for jobs.

  • Resume Maker – this “database” allows patrons to write their resume and store it online. What’s really nice for those who want to submit a resume online it puts in the correct format.
  • Vault Career Library – offers tons of advice on finding jobs, interviewing and writing resumes.
  • InfoGuide – Jobs and Careers

  1. Very timely! My friend sent this article to me, and then I saw it posted on here. The resume maker is a wonderful tool, and though I work primarily with children, it’s been of use to my teen patrons and teen volunteers. I’m coming across a new/old trend of teens working to help support their families, rather than to work for spending money.
