CareerServices has a variety of new and updated resources to make your career research process even better! We are always getting new resources in the centre and we expect to receive new magazines and other additional resources from external sources throughout the year.

Don’t jump into the job search process blind. Knock ‘em Dead Secrets and Strategies for First Time Job Seekers is full of advice and strategies on how to develop social networks, get interviews, ace the interview, and climb the ladder of professional success.

Career Documents
Need to write a cover letter and resume but want to inquire about the process with an informative read at your own pace? Career Services has two new detailed books to assist you with the process:

·         Knock ‘em Dead Cover Letters is a great book full of information that can answer all your questions when it comes to the dos and don’ts of cover letter writing.

Interview Preparation
If you have been offered an interview, you may be wondering what to expect and what to say to improve your chances of coming out successfully. Career Services has an interview preparation binder that has been totally re-vamped this summer! It was out with the old and in with the new. You can find anything in this binder such as:

            ·         What the employer will ask you throughout the interview
