Job Search Techniques

Course Introduction


Job Search and Résumé Writing provides job seekers with both traditional and innovative job-search techniques and résumé writing skills required to gain employment in today’s competitive marketplace.

The course combines theoretical, how-to information with hands-on practical applications. Job seekers are required to draw on their own experiences to identify work preferences, accomplishments, technical and transferable skills, and to research, organize, and analyze information; and to apply their knowledge in a series of job search preparation and implementation tasks.

During the course, job seekers will develop and apply such skills as setting goals, developing job search strategies, using planning and organizing tools, maintaining records, communicating, decision making; and negotiating. This course follows a job search process in which, among many other things, the job seeker is provided with the opportunity to create effective résumés and covering letters using traditional and innovative methods, including social networking, and uploading electronic résumés.
