Looking to create or review a resume? Looking for a second set of eyes? Job searching can be difficult in several ways. Creating a resume is another thing on the typical job seekers to do list. You might be asking: “Where do I start?”
“What should my cover letter sound like?”
“Who should I use as references?”
Be assured that resources exist and are available to you. While our staff is always happy to help, NHFPL also has a collection of e-resources that you can access as a library patron directly through our website.
Navigate from our home page (www.nhfpl.org) to → How Do I? → Research → E-Resources
