Job Search Resources

As some of you may know, I finished my time with the Community Radio Fund of Canada a while back. After taking some time off, I’ve been back at it, looking for a new path. I have come across some great links to articles that made me think about creating a new resume, preparing for interviews, and even figuring out how to find my own way. I have also added some job search links (approximately 30 links) to my resources page.

  • How to get a job past the age of 50 (by Thomas Hart, Undercover Recruiter)
