A company recently approached me in my occupational field to interview for a position with them. I wasn’t really interested in changing jobs, but I went through the process to get a feel for what my worth in the job market was. I found out in the process how ill prepared I was for many of the steps that one would take when looking for a job. Had I known of today’s FamSite, it would have made life easier.
It is called Quintessential Careers, an online site that provides information to anyone who is seeking a job in just about any field. Everything from writing resumes, salary negotiations, cover letters, and interview techniques are covered. There is a section on job career sites broken down in many categories such as type of job, location, industry, etc. In short, if you are looking to make an impression on a prospective employer, then this site is a must visit for you.
Bookmark this site, as you may need it some day. Be sure to pass it on to a friend or fellow employee who may be thinking about a career move. It is a sure-fire winner to help someone.
