I need a job. Now what?
Finding a job can be a full time job. It takes a lot of work and resources to find the right position. Gone are the days of just opening the classified ads and filling out an application.
Here are three important steps to follow in getting a job:
How do I get from here to there?
Many individuals wonder, "What can I do with a major in…?" Use the links below to research college majors and related careers. This is very useful if you are just starting your education, or if you are trying to determine what careers you already qualify for if you are a college graduate. If you’ve started narrowing down your career choices and know what type of training and education is required, it may be time to locate an appropriate school.
How do I find information about an occupation I'm interested in?
It is important to research a career before you decide to choose it as your goal. Surveys estimate that 2/3 of adults feel that if they were starting all over again they would try to get more information about their career options first.
Good information and preparation is the key no matter where you are in the career process. Research information from the sites below on job requirements and descriptions, job outlook and trends, education requirements, and employer profiles.
What do I want to be when I "grow up"?
If you need ideas on what careers may be best suited for you, or you'd like confirmation on one you've been considering, then taking a Career Assessment may fit your needs. Some career tests look at one specific area such as your personality, interests, skills, or values. Other assessments, like the Maricopa Career Planning System are more comprehensive and cover several areas.
