We all know the library is a good place to find books, CDs and DVDs, but can it also help you find a job? The Campaign for America’s Libraries has two useful posts on its @ Your Library website recently about using the library in your job search. “Identifying Potential Employers” outlines ideas for using library databases, reference materials and internet access to research companies, with lots of specific links and resources, and “Libraries provide resources for job seekers” provides more information about how libraries and job seekers are working together, including links to the resources provided by a couple of public libraries like corporate research and information for the recently unemployed.

At the Montclair branch, check out the special Career Collection section (look in the nonfiction 650s or ask a staff member to point the way) for books about resume writing, re-entering the workforce, acing a job interview and more.
