Rochester Career Resources for Job Search
Finding out what to do about your career and job search process is confusing. Here are two resources to help you:
- Figure out what you want to do with your career
- Manage your professional reputation on the internet
The first career resource is Career Success in 12 Easy Steps | a Journal, a book written by Judith Shenouda that applies a series of mini-assessments and helps you figure out what you are passionate about.
Judy takes you on a journey with other career explorers who share their methodology for finding their perfect career. The book uses a journal format and you can write or scribble your notes as you work the questions in each chapter.
This is a great book if you are searching for what to do next in your life and you want to narrow down some of the options without using formal career assessments.
