Career searches and library searches usually start with the same question: Where do I start? The Employment Skills guide serves as a starting point for graduates as they embark on their chosen career. While it begins with resumes, cover letters, and job interviews, employers want to see those 'interpersonal skills,' sometimes known as 'soft skills' although they are far from soft. The ability to communicate and collaborate can serve as a 'transferable skill' in any setting.
Whether you're in the trades or in business, consider this your starting point and, as always, we welcome questions either in person, email, or chat.
Student Employment Services offers further information for students and alumni at various stages within the job search process. Services range from employment advisors to workshops as well as their Job Central site for students and alumni. Contact them via email or phone or check out their locations at each of our campuses:
