There are lots of resources for job seekers. In fact, too many.
If you’re a podcast person, check out www.10goodminutes.com. They interview a variety of executives and managers who provide career strategies and advice for young professionals (we’re all “young” or at least we desire to be!).
Recent interviews include nailing case interviews, answering the question “what should I do with my life?”, learning the difference between a sponsor and a mentor, and understanding that compensation is more than just salary.
While you are thinking about valuable resources, take the time to comb through the career resources that are specifically designed for you: your career center’s website, your college’s or graduate school’s alumni career services website, your school’s library (get to know your librarian who knows all about databases and finding interesting companies for you to target), and any alumni services that your former employers may provide. After all, these resources were made for you. Why not use them?
What other resources have you found particulary helpful for job search and/or career management?
