  • Social Media and your Search
  • Target the Job Market
  • Putting It All Together

Follow up to the workshop with People's Resource Center Job Readiness Quiz:

How do you measure if you are ready for your job search? A hands-on “Job Readiness Quiz” was developed by People’s Resource Center. Using industry and employer standards, we pose questions that only you can answer.
This assessment prompts you with questions that you may not have thought of before and allows you to be honest with yourself before you start your job search.

Contact the Ask Us Desk at askus@dglibrary.org with questions.
