Great advice about how to put your best self forward when looking for a job is always helpful. Whether you’re a recent college grad looking for your first job or someone seeking a career change, advice from people who know the ropes is invaluable. Among its many services to students and the community, Bucks County Community College’s Career Services provides video resources and training to help job seekers prepare for employment.
The online video library contains nearly 60 short videos designed to help job seekers get organized, prepare for interviews and follow up to get the jobs they desire.
Broad video topics include:
- Resumes and cover letters
- Networking & your personal brand
- How to dress for the interview
- The Interview – before, during and after
- Negotiating your salary
- Using social media in your job search
CareerSpots, a professional producer of information career advice videos, produces the short tutorials. Spots average two to three minutes in length and are easily digestible. The website also includes PDFs of the script as well as a summary of the basic information presented in the video clip. The sheets provide a helpful way to review the information quickly.
The videos are completely free to view and are accessible online at www.careerspots.com.
