Are you or someone you know considering a job or career change? Might you be considering going back to school for
certification, training, or a/another degree?
To make changes we often need inspiration and information. Inspiration to nudge us to change, and information on
resources to help us on our way.
Recently, we offered a program which gave people inspiration. The Job & Career Information Center partnered with
Maryland New Directions to present:
Game Changer: How We Transformed Our Careers.
A panel of career changers shared their stories, followed by Q&A. A
podcast is available for those to want to listen.
Information might include:
*Occupational information including education and training requirements
*Resources for finding training or education, and how to pay for it
*Books on a range of topics related to career change.
This type of information is available from the Job & Career Information Center in print and online. To get started,
browse our collection, talk with a librarian, or use the Job Seekers Toolkit.
New books are available to borrow including books related to career change such as:
Real Resumes for Career Changers
by Anne McKinney
Risk/reward: why intelligent leaps and daring choices are the best career moves you can make by Anne Kreamer and other titles.
If you or someone you know is preparing for an occupational test, entrance for further study, or other credentials,
there is also an extensive collection of test preparation books. These include test preparation books for GED, GRE,
LEED Green Associate V4 exam, PRAXIS, CNA, TOEFL and many more.
Job-seeker coaches continue to offer 1-hour appointments to help with job searching, applications, resumes,
and cover letters. These are offered at Central Library, and Pennsylvania Avenue branch, with more to come.
Job Center staff and job-seeker coaches work with Information Services staff to provide assistance at the Career
Clinics in the Public Computer Center in Central Library.
