Taking advantage of the resources

Holy frijoles! Friday I went to another WorkSource training. The instructor wasn’t nearly as good as the LinkedIn lady, but the material was sound.

O*Net – I had forgotten about O*Net. I was first introduced to O*Net when Avaya imploded. I can’t say its visuals have improved immensely over the last fifteen years, but at least you don’t have to telnet into the site anymore.

Career Coach – this one was new to me. Essentially, it is a really cool tool that is buried on the WorkSource site. During the class, we did a quick walkthrough of the information, but for this tool to be really helpful, the job-seeker needs to spend a little of their own time walking through the activities. I really like the tool and it will be interesting to compare my ‘thoughtful’ responses to my ‘quick-hit’ results.

The last link we reviewed was the WorkSource homepage. It was interesting to hear how many folks in the room hadn’t spent much time there.
