The Culpeper Career Resource Center helps you to find the right on-line resources.

The most important use of the web for these purposes is to get information. The web sites selected and discussed here are among the best information sources on the World Wide Web. These web sites, in turn, will lead you to a number of other web sites that contain relevant information for specific purposes such as job interviewing and resume writing. Additionally, a selective library of important reference books for conducting job searches and career transitions is available for use in the Center.
