It’s Career Week and Temple Libraries Are Here To Help

Career Week is a series of events that lead up to the Career Fair. It’s an opportunity for juniors, seniors and graduate students to connect with potential employers. This year the Career Fair takes place on Thursday, February 23 at the Student Center. Students should take advantage of every opportunity to prepare themselves so they’ll be ready to impress the employers. A well-designed resume and the right clothes help, but it’s also critical to prepare by gathering the best information available about the company and the industry in which it operates. That’s where the Temple Univesity Libraries can help. We offer dozens of specialized information databases that can make gathering information about companies and industries easier and less time consuming to conduct. For example, Business and Company Resource Center is a great starting point for both public and private companies. You can use Lexis/Nexis to get the latest news about a company by tapping into thousands of newspapers from around the globe. Stop by the Paley Library on Tuesday, February 21 at 2:00 pm to get on-the-spot help with your company research from Adam Shambaugh, our business research specialist. Help is always available at the Paley “Ask Here” Desk or stop by the Science & Engineering Library (SEL) if you are researching companies in the sciences or engineering. Whether it’s Career Week or any week of the year, the information experts at the Temple University Libraries are availalble to help all Temple students be better prepared for a job interview.
