The Job-Hunter's Survival GuideWith the layoffs at Sikorsky and the Elmira City School District, the Chemung County Library District wants our residents to be aware that we have public computers available where they may search for a job (try – twintiershelpwanted.com) or write a resume (the software program Word has resume templates).  We also have newspapers with job ads from local and major cities around the country on the first floor of Steele and books on job search strategies, resume writing, cover letters, career options, interviewing techniques, and how to start a small business. We also have civil service job announcements in a notebook on the second floor, civil service test books, test databases, and free computer classes.

Some specific resume books for teachers are 101 Grade A Resumes for Teachers by Rebecca Anthony and Expert Resumes for Teachers & Educators by Wendy Enelow.  Sikorsky employees might like the books:  Make Job Loss Work for You by Richard S. Deems or Job Hunter’s Survival Guide by Richard Bolles, the author of the classic job hunter’s guide What Color is Your Parachute.  Both books by Bolles are also available from the library in eBook format.

If you would like information or help finding or using any of our materials, just stop at the Steele reference desk on the second floor and speak to a reference librarian, who is there to assist you.
