Helping Students Gain Successful Job Search Skills

The Job Search Center provides Green River students, alumni and community members with a wealth of online resources to help them create winning résumés, write effective cover letters, prepare and practice for interviews, and to implement successful job search strategies (see our Job Search Resources).

Individuals can also create a profile on GatorJobs to search our database of local employers who are recruiting to fill full-time, part-time, and internship position openings.

For faculty, the Job Search Center staff offers classroom presentations, and print and online curriculum resources designed to assist them in their efforts to help students prepare for the transition from school to work.

For employers, the Job Search Center provides CollegeStudents4Hire.com, an online system for posting jobs and internship/cooperative education opportunities for Green River students and alumni.

"The staff is very helpful, pleasant and efficient. I wouldn't be working now if it weren't for their help." Avivette C.

"I was discussing with my roommate how the Job Seach Center's services are beyond reproach, and how your staff has been such a big help with resume enhancement and mock interviewing, and in helping us secure gainful employment. I can testify that a good resume and proper interview preparation will get you job. After you updated and improved our resumes, we could not keep up with the calls and emails from recruiters for interviews. We had to turn a few down . . . and we're still getting calls to this day." Lance J.
