If you're looking to find out more about a specific career or industry, consider talking to a professional already working in that field. Informational Interviewing can help you learn how to set up and prepare for just such an informational interview.

If you're just kicking off your job search, you'll find Conducting an Effective Job Search helpful. Need help getting ready to attends a Career Fair? Check out Navigating a Career Fair. If you're looking for a summer job, look at Seeking Summer Employment.

Use Researching Employers when you're ready to learn how to create a list of prospective employers. Employer Research 101 shows you how to work your list.

If you're preparing for an interview, take a look at How to Handle the Interview and Questions Asked By Employers for some handy tips. Going on a plant visit? Print off a copy of Plant Trips and On Site Interviews. Not sure how to dress for your interview? Let us help you with Dressing for the Workplace.

Once you receive a job offer, refer to Evaluating Employment Offers for some valuable guidelines to help you with this all-important decision. And remember, read the handout on Legal Advice on Employment Offers and/or seek legal counsel before signing any employement agreements.
