According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average adult will hold over 12 jobs in the course of their lifetime. People can no longer count on “hiring on” with an employer and staying until retirement.

At any given time, recent high school and college graduates are looking to start their working careers. Add to that, there are people who want to move up and get a better job than what they are currently doing. Then, there are those who are faced with a sudden job loss and may need to begin an entirely new career. All of these people are competing for the same job, so how does an applicant stand out?  

The Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library can help with all of that. We have a great resource that you can find at our website. It’s a database called Brainfuse JobNow.
