Most of you are currently job seeking; you can always update your information as your plans firm up later.


If you find that you are being invited to interviews, but aren't getting offers, this article may help. On the other hand, if you are applying to jobs you know you are qualified for, but aren't being invited to interview, it is likely that you aren't targeting your resume and cover letter well enough to the specific job. Making and maintaining connections with people inside the organizations that interest you is most helpful in generating interview invitations, too. More than 45 employers posted jobs in TribeCareers.wm.edu this week; in the 'Jobs' tab of TribeCareers you will find additional job databases, such as 'Human Rights Jobs' and 'Ethical Jobs' and many more.
