Help for Job Seekers

South Brunswick Library has many ways to help anyone looking for a job. 

Many of these are online services you can use from home or in the library from our website. Just click on the Research link . You will find all of our online services in alphabetical order.

Remember, new users need to create their own username and password for each service. Once you have an account always login first.

First try Learning Express . Use their 'Popular Software Tutorials' to improve your computer skills.

Also use Learning Express' Job & Career Accelerator. Here you can search for a job or internship, create a resume or prepare for a job interview.

Next, try using  Brainfuse. Click on the Adult Learner button at the top of the Brainfuse homepage.  You will find training material for resumes, careers, Microsoft Office Software, GED and Citizenship. Resumes can be uploaded and edited by Brainfuse.

Another important resource for job seekers is  Universal Class. Here you will find the class 'Resumes 101'. You can submit any questions you have about the class material to your assigned instructor.

The last database resource is Reference USA. Use this to search for businesses to send your resume to. You can search by keyword, location and business size. Listings include current job openings.

Return to and click on Webguides. Use the Employment Webguide to connect to NJ Workforce for local Employment Services, scan local classifieds and more.

Return to and click on Event Calendar. Select monthly view to find date for next 'Effective Resume Writing' class at the library.

The library also has free public computers, WiFi and scanning and printing and copying for 10 cents a page and faxing for $1.25 for the first page and $1 for every other one.

If you need help with any of this please contact us at 732-329-4000 X 7286 or .
