It’s a given–everyone wants to find a job when they graduate from college. A recent Hackney Library acquisition may make the task of preparing for a career and finding a job in a particular field that much easier—and it’s now available as part of a batch of newly-acquired NCLIVE resources!
Ferguson’s Career Guidance Center is a comprehensive electronic resource that enables users to explore industries and careers, plan their education, and research best practices for résumés, cover letters, interviewing, networking, and salaries/benefits. The database includes articles, career advice blogs, and streaming video.
Ferguson’s is available in our A-Z list on the library’s home page, and from the Career Exploration LibGuide on our library page as well. You can access it from on campus with no password, and it is accessible from off campus to Barton students, faculty, and staff by logging in with your Barton username and password.
Once you have accessed Ferguson’s, it’s recommended that you set up an account within the database to customize your search results and save them to a folder, among other things. (To do so, click on the “Create an Account” link on the right-hand side of the blue banner at the top of the screen, and follow the instructions.)
Ferguson’s complements several other employment resources—both print and electronic—available through Hackney Library.
So when you’re looking for a job or preparing for a career, remember to try out this new resource (and don’t forget to visit Barton’s Career Services office as well, located in the Office of Student Success in the library)!
