Job Search Web Resources

The Career Center at Mount St. Mary’s University has resources available to help in each step of the career development process.

After you have identified your strengths and areas of interest, the task of finding an occupation to meet not only your personal needs but also your professional goals begins. A job search can look very different from one person to the next as well as from one industry to the next. This can involve networking with peers, alumni, attending job fairs, and subscribing to and posting a resume on job search websites. Whatever your path is, we would like to help by sharing some resources that have helped other students find the career that best suits them.
