The Career Gateway Job Seekers Guide: A Tool for Career Planning
by Lola Lucas
Recently, the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES) collaborated with the International Association of Jewish Vocational Services (IAJVS) in a project funded by the U.S. Department of Labor. The end product was the Career Gateway Job Seekers Guide to help adults to learn about themselves, the world of work, and then put the two together in a successful job search. It now appears in both print and online versions. Illinois was one of eight states that customized the national version. The guide now points to our own state's resources as well as general sites.
