If you're looking for open jobs, researching new career options, or looking for career advice, it's a good practice to seek information from professional sources. Our employment guide resources include topics on employee rights, layoffs, job applications, unemployment issues, and ways to gain new work experience.

Use our resources to advance your career or find a new opportunity. We offer advice, tips, and news through daily articles covering the labor market, unemployment issues, employment news, government programs, and entrepreneurship. Additionally, use the career information software tool in order to research employment market trends, career salaries, or job requirements for different types of roles.

An employment guide in the general sense is used to help job seekers find a job. In a more narrow sense, an organization or a specific industry may use one to inform candidates of what steps to go through in order to get hired.
Job seekers use guides to help them prepare for obtaining a job. If an organization is very selective about the people whom they employ or if the field is highly specialized, they might consider writing a guide to help candidates prepare themselves for employment and to eliminate candidates that would not be a good match for the organization. Either the human resources department or the talent acquisition department would be responsible for compiling such a guide.

A guide is useful to job seekers because looking for a job can seem like an extremely overwhelming task. It helps break the search down into manageable steps; it also gives instructions on how to complete those steps so that job seekers can find employment more quickly. A guide is useful to an organization because it eliminates candidates that are not very serious about acquiring the position. It also decreases delays that result from a candidate's not having all the steps to hiring process completed.

An employment guide might have some of the following: career tests, career planning, compensation information, education requirements, employee benefits, employment laws, interview advice, job application instructions, job search tips, and networking tips. Some guides are generalized, but some are specific to the industry or organization.
