Here are a few your library may not have discovered yet. Take a look and decide which may be a good fit for job seekers in your community. This quick glimpse of online tools does not represent an endorsement of any of them - you're the best judge of what may work for your website and the patrons you serve.
The Roadtrip Nation website is designed to speak to young job seekers. The organization was founded by Nathan, Mike and Brian, who didn't know what they wanted to do with their lives after graduation. They took a road trip in a truly ugly green camper, asking people who do what they love how they decided on their careers. That trip 15 years ago grew into Roadtrip Nation. The website includes a searchable blog featuring posts by folks who have found careers they love, a "Get Guidance" section where users can map their skills and interests to identify career choices, a "Give Guidance" section where users can share what they've learned about career exploration, and an archive of every episode of the Roadtrip Nation TVshow, broadcast on PBS.
Many colleges and universities, including those offering MBA programs rely on Wetfeet and Vault. Your library may decide against posting links to free content posted to websites of for-profit firms, but you may want to cherry pick some of the great free features. Know of more great resources like these? Please let me know so we can spread the word.
