Job hunters will no doubt benefit from taking a good look at The Career Gateway: Job Seekers Guide, produced by JVS Chicago. Jewish Vocational Service crafted an easily searchable online tool which directs job seekers to accomplish steps they need in their search. Excercises are simple to follow, but essential in identifying contacts, giving realistic advice and encouragement to network with confidence. There are helpful guides to develop writing and computer skills, prepare for phone and in-person interviews, personal budgeting, and sample scripts to start conversations with potential hiring managers.
While The Career Gateway is an excellent job site, it by no means takes the place for the personal service and consultation offered by JVS. They have convenient locations and professional career guidance staff to help job hunters from all levels. Their main office is at 216 West Jackson Blvd., Suite 700, Chicago, IL 60606. Please call or email for an appointment: firstname.lastname@example.org or (312) 673-3400.
