Looking for a Job? Use These Free Resources to Your Advantage

Looking for a job is never easy – whether you’re a recent college graduate or a seasoned worker, the application process can be a draining experience. With so many job openings now posted online only, it can be even harder to know where you can get reliable information and help throughout the process. USA.gov has pulled reliable resources from across the government to help you find the next step in your career.

The Department of Labor (DOL) should be on the top of your list if you’re job hunting. DOL offers employment tips, resume builder activities, layoff resources and much more. DOL’s Employment and Training Administration (ETA) aims to improve your prospects of employment, no matter your age. Most training events are hosted through states and local American Job Center Network members. Through the ETA you can find subtopics for a wide range of subjects including adult training programs, summer jobs, trade act programs and more.

Outside the ETA, the DOL offers even more resources for job seekers. You can find categories for disability resources, links to job training such as mySkills myFuture, career guides to different industries, wages and work hours information and more. DOL updates these resources on a regular basis so check back often during your job search.

Those living outside Washington D.C. often forget that the federal government is hiring. USA Jobs is your gateway to discovering federal job openings across the country. You can search for jobs based on key words, job title, agency or location. USA Jobs also includes the Pathways Programs which offer federal job opportunities for recent college graduates and the Presidential Management Fellows Program for recent advanced degree graduates.
