Your Pierce County Library card now gets you access to a resume assistance service, free of charge.
The county library system announced Monday that it is offering access to software from Resume Maker, which provides guided resumes in dozens of styles. The service also includes video simulations representing top interview questions and answers, information about salary standards and salary negotiation tips.
“We’re hearing more and more from folks in our libraries saying, ‘I need help with this,'” said Mary Getchell, library spokeswoman.
So the library entered into a two-year contract with Resume Maker for $15,000.
Library card holders can access the service from their home computer by going to www.piercecountylibrary.org, then clicking on “Search Site” in the top right corner. In the search field, enter “resume maker” then select the appropriate item. Follow the instructions from there on logging in.
The service also will be available from the libraries’ own computers. Go to www.piercecountylibrary.org/branches to find the location closest to you.
