Career Site Launches New Job Quiz Tests Knowledge of Job-Hunting
(DeLand, FL) — How much do you think you know about looking for a new job? Test your knowledge with the job quiz developed by a nationally known author, Webmaster, and professor of marketing. Experts and novices alike will enjoy the challenge and information provided by the quiz.
“The quiz contains general questions about job-hunting, as well as specific questions about cover letters, resumes, and interviewing,” states Dr. Randall Hansen, co-author of Dynamic Cover Letters (Ten Speed Press), Webmaster of Quintessential Careers, and associate professor of marketing at Stetson University, DeLand, FL. “And while the quiz consists of only 15 questions, it really covers the spectrum of job-hunting, including job-hunting on the Internet.” The job quiz can be found on the Quintessential Careers Website at: https://www.livecareer.com/quintessential/job-quiz.html.
The job quiz is just one of several new additions and changes to this career and job-hunting resources guide, which is celebrating its third anniversary on the Web in November. “I never knew when I was starting this Website that it would grow to become so popular or that I would still be doing this three years later,” Hansen says. “I think of Quintessential Careers as a portal for all college, career, and job information and resources. I started Quintessential Careers with the goal of helping all job seekers to better understand the job-hunting process and to provide people with as many resources — both on and off the Net — as possible to help them in their quest for better jobs or new careers.”
Besides the job quiz, other anniversary additions to the career site include special sections for former military personnel making the transition to the civilian workforce, mature job-seekers searching for new jobs or careers, and employers looking for help and resources in the recruitment process. Mainstays of the site include articles and tutorials, job resources by industry, geography and job-seeker classification, as well as many other resources and tools for people seeking new careers and jobs. Special sections exist for teens and college students, since their needs and goals are different from those of other job-seekers.
Quintessential Careers has won more than 100 awards and honors from the Internet community, including: Real Life Resources Award, Adguide’s Gold Award for Internet Excellence, USA Today Hot Site, Career X Roads 500 Best, Look Smart Editor’s Choice, 4anything.com’s Editor’s Choice, and World Village Family Site of the Day. It was recently one of five Web sites recommended by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Outlook Quarterly (Summer 1999) in an article about resumes and cover letters.
