A Closer Look at
Job Search Resources
There are some really valuable job search resources out there for you.
www.careeronestop.org, onet.org, missouriconnections.org,
are some of the resources
found under the Exploring Your Options tab
of the S.E.M.O. Career Decision-Making Model.
You might be interested in
, our student employment database, which can connect you to
full-time jobs and internships,
and the
Blitz List
, a list of
part-time jobs
available to students in the Cape Girardeau area. Both are easily found on the Career Services website homepage.
Why job search tools and resources?

Job search resources like glassdoor.com, indeed.com, monster.com & linkedin.com are very valuable to the job search process because they can help you
research employers, find specific job requirements, insider information, easily apply for jobs and provide potential networking opportunities
. Some job search resources have unique qualities that can be helpful. Glassdoor and Indeed provide company reviews.
