Wilson Launches new Career Database
Posted by: Sue Polanka

According to the OCLC study How Libraries Stack Up: 2010, everyday 300,000 Americans get job seeking help at their public library.  Perfect timing for Wilson's new Career Database I'd say.  The database, part of the Current Issues database series, is designed to provide articles and information for those launching or changing careers in today's tough job market.  For each career, basic demographic information is provided like qualifications, duties, pay scale, application process, etc. and 15-20 hand selected journal articles are included to offer a focused look at each career.  The database also provides a job-finders toolbox, with links to 50+ job seeking websites.  Free 30-day trials are available.  Contact Wilson for more information.
