All of Your Career Essentials in One Place!

It’s never easy to prepare for a job search.  Patrons need to update resumes, write cover letters, and assess their strengths before they even begin searching for job postings!  Why direct patrons to countless career resources, when your library can offer Optimal Resume instead?
 
Optimal Resume offers an integrated suite of career tools to help job seekers create resumes and cover letters, assess their professional skills, and practice common interview questions.  Going beyond the basics, we also offer E-Portfolio and Video Resume tools to help job seekers stand apart from the crowd.  Finished documents can even be integrated into a professional website to share on LinkedIn, by email, or through other electronic media.  One website provides every resource a patron could need to prepare for their job search.
 
Optimal Resume is easy to set up and requires minimal maintenance from libraries. Users have access to a wealth of video and written resources to provide a self-guided experience.  Each of our tools offers expert-driven content tailored to a variety of occupations and experience levels.  Patrons can even take part in free career preparation webinars hosted by Optimal representatives, allowing them to build essential skills for the road ahead.
