Everything Resume BookIt's no secret that a lot of people are looking for jobs right now. To help, the Santa Fe Public Library has a number of job-hunting and job-getting resources. Every branch has a good collection of books about résumés, cover letters, job interviews and job search help, many in Spanish.

The libraries put aside the Sunday employment classifieds from the Santa Fe New Mexican and the Journal North. You can ask for these at the Reference Desk and take notes or make photocopies of the listings. Both papers have online classifieds: the Journal here, the New Mexican here. There are also computers in every branch with word processing, internet searching and printing capabilities.

Cover Letters that Knock 'Em DeadWe offer a Jobs and Employment page, with links to general jobs sites, résumé and cover letter assistance, and targeted jobs for fields such as business, non-profits, arts and government. We also have links to business and non-profit information, and a Business and Company Resource Center database for researching potential employers before the interview. You can check out job openings with the City of Santa Fe and apply online at the Job Opportunities page.
