Job Search

How to Find a Job Using the Internet:

Here’s the basic information you need to know as a job seeker in today’s internet-based job market. There are three things you need to apply for a job on the internet. They are:

  • an electronic copy of your resume
  • an email account
  • websites where you can find job postings and apply for them

Resume Preparation

Your resume is a simple document showing your contact information, your work history, your educational background and other qualifications for a job.

To help you organize the information you will need to include in your resume please download this Resume Worksheet.

Cover Letter

When applying for a job, a cover letter should be sent or posted with your resume. Your cover letter should be specific to the position you’re applying for. Relate your skills and experiences to those noted in the job posting. Your cover letter is your first and best chance to make a good impression!

To be effective, your cover letter should follow the format of a typical business letter and should address three general issues:

  • specify which job you are applying for
  • what you have to offer the employer
  • how you will follow up

GED Preparation and Q & A:

You may be ready to take the test. How do you know for sure?

You may want to take a practice test to determine if you just need to brush-up on just one or more of the subject matters. We can provide a Practice GED® Official Test and help you determine if you are ready to take the test or just need to review certain subject areas.

We provide GED pre-assessments in order to help you target the areas of study you will need review prior to taking the Official Test. Then we recommend the updated material that will help you pass the test and a learning coach will monitor your progress. Our GED program is self-paced and flexible.

Yes, and we can provide you with pre and post-assessments in Spanish as well as with books and study guides that will help you pass the test.
