Careers – Jobs

Job Searching

Most people search for jobs based on the last job they had or what they think they are qualified to do.  Through Career Vision we encourage you to utilize proactive job searching which takes into account your location and passions.  Read all job descriptions at employers you may be interested and see if you can learn some of the skills needed if the jobs seem interesting!  Don’t assume you don’t qualify if you have never done it before.
