Tools to Help You Find a Job or Trade School

A woman, donned in a hardhat, yellow vest, and holding a clipboard, embodies the tools discussed in the blog for finding a job or trade school with confidence and preparedness.

We have added three helpful tools to the website to assist you in accessing valuable information about employment opportunities.

These integrations are made through APIs – or “Application Programming Interface.” Think of an API like a restaurant menu, which provides a list of dishes you can order, along with a description of each dish. When you specify what menu items you want, the restaurant’s kitchen does the work and provides you with the finished dishes. You don’t know exactly how the restaurant prepares that food, and you don’t really need to.

In the same way, we’ve saved time and effort by accessing valuable information gathered by the U.S. Department of Labor with the following:

With this job search integration, simply enter a “job title” and “location” anywhere in the United States, and get listings of current job openings for that type of work in seconds. From there, you can follow the application process to apply for specific jobs.

Job Description

Sometimes, before you apply for a job, it can be helpful to know more about a “job description.” And a good way to get noticed as a candidate is to tailor your resume to the employer’s job description. We’ve also integrated a helpful tool so you can research any type of job you could think of from A (auto mechanic) to Z (Zumba instructor). This job description search function provides insight for you to think about what you can bring to a company and incorporate your most applicable skills, qualifications, and responsibilities on your resume.

Trade Schools

Finally, we’ve integrated a search function for trade schools. This helpful tool enables you to find trade schools and programs nationwide that offer technical training, licensure, or required certification for a specific trade or job. Learn more
