What are the best jobs for the 21st century? Did you know that there are 150 best recession-proof jobs? The Library has updated its job-search titles for both the new job seeker as well as the career changer. The Best Jobs for the 21st Century and 150 Best Recession-Proof Jobs are just two of the new titles that were recently added to Library’s Job Corner to help job seekers succeed in this difficult economic climate.

At home or in the Library, patrons can also click on the Job and Career Resources link on the home page of the catalog and access employment-related titles that are available either in the Library or that can be interloaned to assist with job searches. The Library also keeps current lists of upcoming Nassau County and New York State Civil Service openings and tests. These lists are located on a table in front of the Reference Desk. In the Periodical Room, there are civil-service employment publications including The Chief and Federal Jobs Digest, as well as the current issues of local and national newspapers with classified sections.

With the wide range of materials found in our collection, the Reference staff are always available to provide patrons with the best assistance possible.
