Suffolk County Libraries

Trained counseling professionals provide confidential, one-on-one Career Counseling at some Suffolk County Libraries.  Services are geared toward recent high school graduates, college students, women returning to the job market, career changers, the unemployed/underemployed, early retirees, or those dissatisfied with their present job situation and seeking direction.  Counselors can provide assistance with career planning, self-assessment, college, vocational/technical and financial aid information, resume and cover letter preparation, interviewing techniques, networking strategies and conducting a job search via the Internet.  Clients can take interest inventories, personality indicators and/or use Internet-based career guidance programs.  Services are free of charge, however some libraries may have eligibility requirements.

Colleges/Universities

Students and alumni should be aware that most colleges and universities have a Career Placement Service.  Anyone affiliated with a school is usually entitled to use the service which may offer job opportunity information and career guidance.  If you have attended an out-of-town college, contact your school to learn if it has reciprocity with other schools.  Check with your college to determine the extent of its career services.
