Abstract

Successful job searches requires applicants to possess the requisite skills and experience to succeed in the position. Additionally, students must seek out information about the hiring organization. As information professionals we are able to introduce students to the tools available for competitive intelligence research and to train students in the responsible use of these tools. We also provide instructional support to job-seekers once they are equipped with this new insider knowledge. In collaboration with on-campus career development offices, libraries can develop literature and resource guides for job seeking students. This literature includes maximizing job board sites and crafting emails that get employers attention. Most importantly, panelists will share secrets to helping students pinpoint their desired employer, matching student talent to the organization’s needs, and marketing the candidate to the hiring manager

Presentation Description

Panelists will offer best practices, tools, tips and resources for providing services for career research for your library users. The foundation of our work so far has been in business schools and law schools. However, we will highlight our successes in order to help attendees learn how to build academic programs across their own campus to help their users find employment. Lastly, we will discuss how these partnerships not only help the career seekers but the institution as well.
