Could you use some resume coaching?

Our Careers and job search subject guide points you to several resources, and a librarian can help you get oriented to them. We'll even help you use Microsoft Word to finish your resume.

Here are our top online resources:

  • Career Transitions – explore new career possibilities, assess your interests and experience, identify ways to improve your prospects, create a résumé, search and apply for jobs
  • Testing and Education Reference Center – study and practice for career certification examinations
  • Lynda.com – watch tutorials for your resume, your elevator pitch, the job interview, salary negotiation, and workplace success
  • Reference books in Gale Virtual Reference Library – research careers, prepare for a job search, and practice for mental measurements examinations such as leadership, personality, and reasoning aptitudes

Our top community resource is the American Job Center Tennessee. They have job fairs, workshops, individual help—they'll even print your resume envelope and mail it for you!

Of course, we also have plenty of guidance that you can check out. Besides our recommendations under the Books tab of the subject guide, below are some suggested catalog searches.
