Wondering how you can locate a job in a challenging economy? Then, you might want to consider taking the Independent Job Search Class at the Ford Library which will allow you to:

  • find articles on a particular company
  • find industry reports
  • locate market research.
  • create a customized list of companies using variables such as geographic location, annual sales, industry, etc.
  • Beginning 12/3 at 10am and 2pm, the classes will be held in the Ford Library Database Resources Room.

    Some of the databases covered will include ABI-Inform, Factiva, MarketLine and Onesource, plus a look at Vault, Wetfeet, and others. This class is designed for students who have not taken the basic library database class.
