Step 5. Job-Seeking Skills
When you are about to complete your degree, are ready to look for work or are actively seeking employment, it is time to develop the tools and skills that will help you find employment.
Examples of tools you should develop for your job search are a résumé, cover letter and/or a portfolio.
You may improve your interview techniques and prepare for an interview in many ways.
Counselors at each PCC campus can help you with interviewing techniques. Drop in to a campus Student Services Center, or make an appointment to see a career counselor or sign up for a workshop. Online resources also are available to help you prepare for and practice interviewing.
