Introduction:

(Martin): Are you looking for a job? Seeking positions that match your skills? Take your job search to the next level with Career Services’ Resources Tab!  Hi, I am Martin Culberson, Graduate Assistant with the  Career Services Center.  I think you'll be like me, and surprised by how many job banks and career resources Walden University offers, including webinars, Quick Start videos and interview coaching.  This orientation to the resources tab will guide you to the niche job banks, LinkedIn Groups, and professional development resources for your field. Let’s get started!

The first tab lists associations, career guides, and professional development resources in higher education, the middle tab includes job banks, such as Chronicle of Higher Education and higheredjobs.com, where you can search for open positions. Finally, the last tab lists LinkedIn Groups where jobs may be shared or posted by group members. And that’s all there is to it!
