Job Search Strategy Tip Sheets

We would prefer to have you present in our Career Center to interact and help you in your job search face-to-face.  However, we know a lot of your thinking, writing and searching may also happen either at home or somewhere else.  To help, we’ve developed a series of Tip Sheets to help you and for you to take “on the go”, so to speak.  You can see below that they encompass a wide variety of issues that you may face during your job search.  Feel free to download, print and share them.  (Unless otherwise noted, the Tip Sheets are in PDF form.  If you do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader, you will need to download it here.)

The Tip Sheets below are in the order of a typical job search from beginning to end.  We’ve included a few miscellaneous tip sheets for job seekers as well as some for employers at the bottom of this page. We are continually adding to the list, so check back often for new Tip Sheets.
