Being unemployed—or even underemployed—can make repaying your financial obligations difficult. Trying to find a new or better job can be a great way to address this difficulty head-on. Job hunting is hard enough, but the process can be stressful too, especially if you’re unsure of where to begin. Windham wants you to succeed.
Below, we’ve identified and described some resources that may help you to reach your employment and career goals. We’re not job search experts. There’s plenty of information available online, and we’ve just gathered a few of these resources in one convenient place for you. We are not responsible for, and have no control over, the content of the following websites. We encourage you to consider these resources along with others you may identify through your own efforts.
Finding a job is a job in and of itself. It takes time, commitment, attention to detail, and effort. Preparation is an important aspect of a successful job hunt. Set up a work space, schedule time each day to work on your applications, and get ready to be busy.
Take a look at your online presence and consider cleaning it up. What a potential employer sees there–or doesn’t see–can influence their perception of you before you even walk through the door for an interview. Not sure how to go about it? Check out this link for some step-by-step help.
Next, tackle your resume. Times have changed, so be sure yours is up-to-date with both content and format. Read over your resume several times to make sure you catch any misspellings, typos, or grammar mistakes. Monster.com, a popular job posting website, offers advice on building your resume and even has sample resumes by job type you can look at for inspiration.
There are many places online where companies post job opportunities, often called job boards. Several job boards are listed below to help you start your search. Some focus on recent college graduates and others can be more industry-specific or suited for a specific type of applicant.
