Looking for a Job? Try Job & Career Accelerator
Try the Dick Smith Library's Job & Career Accelerator database. As soon as you click on it (and register...don't worry, it's free and easy to do), you'll be taken through a helpful step-by-step tutorial. The site is very user-friendly; so, even if you bypass the tutorial, you can figure it out pretty quickly on your own. I suggest creating a profile first. There's not much information to fill out, and it will give you a list of jobs that are within your education level. You can still look at the jobs within other education levels as well. It also provides a quiz, called the Occupation Matcher, that fits a list of jobs specifically to your personality as well as your education level. It's actually pretty intuitive. The site also helps you with your resumes and helps you to prepare for the hiring process. All-in-all, it's a pretty handy database to find; so, check it out and see what you think.
