Another Great Site for Job Seeker Tools

The U.S. Department of Labor’s website provides developmental tools for job seekers, laid-off workers, students, businesses, and career professionals. To complement what you’ve found on Career Transitions, check out what has to offer.

The general categories on the site include the following:

Explore Careers: Assessment tests, career coaching, career trends, and even a section entitled “What’s Hot” can be found here. If you’re not sure what you are interested in as a career, this would be a great place to explore.

Education and Training: This is an excellent area for exploring education and training programs and finding colleges that offer those programs. There’s also information on scholarships and other ways to finance your college education.

Resumés and Interviews: If you’re writing a resumé or interviewing, and particularly if it’s been awhile since you’ve done either, this section is for you. There’s even a checklist available so you don’t forget anything when attending an interview.

Salary and Benefits: Many people want to know what salary and benefits they can expect in a particular career or what jobs are trending and where. This section links to these topics and more.

Job Searching: This section includes a list of best job-search sites, information on how to apply using online job sites, and even provides assistance with negotiating and networking.

People and Places: This section redirects you to local job assistance resources, such as unemployment benefits, employment training, and government and private sector resources.
