A Guide for Your Job Quest

If you’ve gotten a pink slip, the last thing you need is to spend a lot of green trying to get a new job. The good news: You don’t have to.

CareerOneStop, a Web site sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, guides you to a wealth of resources in your state. You can find job centers where you can learn new skills, boost old ones, and polish your interviewing and resumé-writing skills. Some centers have phones, copy and fax machines, and computers to use in your search. Most workshop and retraining programs are free.

CareerVoyages provides information on apprenticeship and certificate programs in various professions, including those deemed to be high-growth industries for both blue-collar and white-collar workers.

And, of course, there is AARP’s WorkSearch, where you can assess your skills for a new career and locate training programs and job openings specifically for workers 50 and older.
