Libraries are a fantastic resource for job seekers or people looking to improve their work place/careers. While we cover BASIC job skills in our book, there are whole books on everything from finding a job to writing a better resume to dealing with conflict in the work place. And many libraries provide these free to the public.
Something to think about: The work place shifting. The recession cost us jobs in some areas, but there are others hurting for workers. We need psychologists, medical specialists, skilled tradesmen like plumber and electricians, tighter restrictions on illegal aliens mean a lot of harvests are short handed for workers. The green movement is gaining strength as it's economic benefits become more obvious, so there's a lot of potential for growth in green industries.
Best of luck to everyone.
