More Things You Didn’t Know About JCEC

The Job and Career Education Center offers a few services and resources that many people don’t know about.  

Did you know we have a scanner with OCR (optical character recognition) software?  This means that we can help you create edit-able computer files from a paper document.  It works better than you’d think!  So if the only thing you can find is a hard copy of an outdated resume, our scanner can save you a lot of typing.   

We are also able to send outgoing faxes for all customers at the rate of $1 / page.  We’ll even provide you with a free cover sheet and make sure you receive a confirmation page.  (Unfortunately, we are unable to receive incoming faxes for customers at this time.)

Once again, I cannot say enough nice things about Resume Maker.  If you haven’t tried it yet, you’re missing out.

The Audio / Visual collection in the JCEC may seem small compared to the department down the hall from us, but it’s packed with interesting titles.  Now you can brush up on your Interview Techniques, discover Power Networking, or learn how to write the perfect college admission essay, all without having to crack a book.

On a side note, if you’re using JCEC resources in your job-hunt, please call or visit our Ask a Librarian desk and complete a brief form for statistical purposes.  And when you find your new job, we hope that you’ll check back again to let us know about it.  These two small steps can have a big impact on maintaining the JCEC’s funding.

The JCEC is ready to assist you whenever the Main Library is open – Monday through Thursday from 10 until 8, Friday and Saturday from 10 until 5:30, and Sunday from 12 until 5.  We look forward to seeing you!
