Job & Career Accelerator

Job & Career Accelerator has lots of unique features that set it apart from the the other LearningExpress Library modules I’ve described in the last few weeks. As the name implies, Job & Career Accelerator is a powerful job search resource, helping you to

  • explore more than 1,100 occupations and choose a career that’s right for you
  • search more than 5 million job and internship postings
  • create and publish resumes and cover letters based on hundreds of examples
  • practice your interviewing skills
  • and manage your job search progress.

For more information, I recomment this excellent post by Beth Staats at Minitex. She explains in greater detail what each section can do to help you find and get the job you’re looking for.


Don’t forget you’ll need a personal account in order to use LearningExpress Library. It’s free for DCTC students; just click on the blue Register button near the lower right corner of the home page.
