Great Summer Reads from the WGU Career E-Library

As summer gets underway you might be looking to add to your summer reading list. Stop by the WGU Career E-Library for some relevant information and resources to enhance your job search and career. Do you have questions about industries that might interest you? Are you wondering how to handle a recent job loss? Are you interested in resources for job seekers with disabilities? The WGU Career E-Library has information that can help you answer these questions (and then some).  Let’s take a tour!

  • One of the featured resources in the WGU Career E-Library is the Riley Guide. Here you will find comprehensive online information and resources to assist you in your career and job search.  The Riley Guide brings you the latest information on career management resources on the Internet. Simply use the alphabetical index to locate your area of interest and you’ll be directed to the best sites available. 
  • WGU also offers excellent resources to research a variety of industries from First Research and Hoover’s, Inc. These tools provide hundreds of industry profiles, covering over 1000 industry segments. Profiles include in-depth data and are continuously updated. There is even a feature with industry specific questions you can ask in an Informational Interview. 
  • Interested in opportunities in federal service? The Career E-Library links to Go Government – a one-stop shop for how to find and apply to federal government jobs.
