Job & Career Accelerator Discontinued after July 2022

The New Jersey State Library, from whom we have access to JerseyClicks, announced that Job & Career Accelerator will no longer be available for patrons to access. This was decided by a committee composed of representatives from all types of New Jersey libraries who met from March through May this year to review our statewide e-resources. Thank you for understanding.

NJ Career Network Job Seeker Community

A FREE online community to help you in your job search and connect you with other people who are (or have recently been) looking for jobs and with our volunteer coaching network.

This community understands that your job search will not be successful unless you are okay, both physically and mentally. They will share resources and conversations about looking for a job. You can ask questions, get feedback, and learn new job search skills. They will also talk about everything else in your life that you need to manage at the same time. Losing your job is a crisis, but we can help you cope and find your next opportunity.
