Career Resources Round Up

I’m not one to be a gatekeeper. Education and resources need to be accessible, readily available, easy to navigate and applicable.

Here are my favorite go-to resources that I refer to clients to learn about themselves, their targeted industries, professional development, career transitions and overall job search strategy.

I don’t go to these sites every day. However, I follow most of them on social media. Websites/resources typically have knowledge communities: webinars, Facebook groups, LinkedIn pages, Twitter connections and more. Follow and engage so this information comes to you when you are interacting with your social channels.

Whether you a looking for a little inspiration, need to optimize your job search or connect with your community, you can find value in the following career resources.

Tweet us at @FIUalumni and let us know which resources you found helpful or a new career website you would like to share with your #FIUalumni community.

To a better you!
