Whatever one might say about our local economy, one thing is for sure ... it is in constant change and transition. There is a new database that is especially designed for those seeking a new job, Career Transitions, and it has been added to the San Jose Public Library collection of databases (located in the Research section). This great resource is from Gale Publishers and it will take you through a job search step by step in a systematic approach. It will help you assess your strengths and interests and help you explore new career opportunities. You can also prepare a resume in six easy steps and download or email it. This is a totally free database, although first time users will need to create an account. If you are looking for that perfect job, you've got to check out this resource.
