Job searching and resume creation are topics that we are often asked about in the Adult Services Department of CCLD’s Central Library. You may or may not be aware that patrons of our library and libraries of the Southern Tier (public libraries in Allegany, Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben, and Yates Counties) have access to a service called JobNow. JobNow has a number of features that can help job seekers including: career resources, resume help, interview coaching, GED test prep, and more.
For individuals looking for help creating a resume, there are downloadable templates available to help them get started. If someone already has a resume and would like help fine-tuning it, there is a resume lab service that allows users to submit a resume and receive feedback within 24 hours. Another great feature available is live resume help that allows users to connect with an expert for resume advice. The portion of the website dedicated to helping users “ace the interview” includes links to tips and resources and also has a live coaching feature that allows you to connect to an interview coach. All of the live help features are only available from 2pm – 11pm on Mondays. For more information about JobNow, contact the Central Library. To access JobNow, click on the link located on our databases page.
JobNow was purchased with Central Book Aid Funds provided to CCLD’s Central Branch by New York State.
