Peterson’s Career Prep, one of ESPL’s latest e-Resources
ESPL circulation staff meet once a month to discuss circulation desk issues and training recommendations to better serve ESPL patrons. This month they were asked to learn how to use our newest e-Resource Peterson’s Career Prep, made available by the Library of Virginia for ESPL’s library card holders. Peterson’s Career Prep provides the tools necessary for you to create a resume, cover letter and curriculum vitae. There are tutorials that explain the difference between these three items and professional examples are provided. A resume can be uploaded from a computer or flash drive and updated in this program. You can also create a resume, cover letter and curriculum vitae from start to finish within the software program. These items can be saved online and downloaded in Microsoft Word or PDF format. The end result is a very professional formatted document, which will assist anyone trying to find a job or start a new career.
