Job Hunting on the Internet, Online Guide

As you begin your search for an exciting career opportunity, do consult Steenbock Library’s online guide to Job Hunting on the Internet.

This guide supplies links to resources for helping you prepare your resume and cover letter, tips for networking and interviewing, sources to help you research potential employers, and tools for retrieving current job listings.

Applied Math and Science Education Repository (AMSER)

AMSER is a portal to educational resources and services—open courseware, comprehensive Web sites developed by researchers, lectures, notes, and applications. It is funded by the National Science Foundation as part of the National Science Digital Library and managed by a team of project partners led by the Internet Scout project at UW-Madison.

While initially constructed for use by those in community and technical colleges, the site is free for everyone to access and one can create a personal login to save and organize particular resources and to receive recommendations of related information.
