In Films on Demand you can find plenty of short videos created to help college students just like you learn how to make the most of their job search. Learn how to use social media in a professional manner, prepare for an interview, network with professionals in your field, and more.

Here are a few videos to get your started. You can search Films on Demand using keywords like "interview" or "resume" to find more relevant videos.

When researching a company you're interested in, don't just stop at the company website. Library resources can help you dig further and stay informed.
