If the goal of the recruiter or temp agency is to place their clients in a new position, why don’t they offer more career planning training? Many firms offer some very basic tips on career planning to their clients via a few web pages or PDFs. We know through adult learning theories that not everyone learns via simply reading. The training videos from ej4 always include a live presenter on the screen to better connect with the learners along with vibrant graphics to reinforce the content and keep the viewer engaged.
We created this series to better prepare job seekers for a successful job search. These career planning videos can also differentiate your recruiting from the competition. You can sample four of the courses above or sign up for a free trial of Thinkzoom, our LMS to see the entire series.
We've also created a career planning bundle that not only includes courses from this topic, but also incorporates many other soft skills courses to help job seekers in entry level, management, sales, and administrative roles. Download the full course list for this bundle.

How to Create a Resume
How do you best represent yourself on paper? That’s essentially what a resume is. How do you stand out from people just like you, who are vying for the same position? Your resume might end up in a pile of hundreds of other job applicants. How do you stand out? What should you include or omit? How do you position your skillset to fit the position you’re applying for? What are the right keywords to use? What’s the best design, layout, or font to use? This course will walk you through the various ways to create a standout resume.
What's an Applicant Tracking System?
If you’re career planning or looking to switch jobs, it’s important for you to understand how an applicant tracking system, or ATS, works. These systems automate recruiting and staffing operations for organizations of all sizes by filtering resumes and applications. To land your dream job, or even just an interview, you need to know what these systems are looking for, and how their algorithms work. In this course, we’ll talk about creating an ATS-friendly resume by using certain keywords and listing specific skills and titles.
Do You Need a Cover Letter?
Do you really need a cover letter? Yes. Yes, you do. You need a good one. A cover letter is a great opportunity to sell yourself to a prospective employer, in addition to what is already listed on your resume. It’s your chance to tell them why they should hire you instead of all the other candidates. In this course, we’ll talk about why cover letters are useful. We’ll go over what to include in a cover letter and where to look for ideas. We’ll also discuss what to do before you submit it.
How to Prepare for an Interview
Congrats! You landed an interview! You want to represent yourself in the best light possible, so how do you do that? One of the most important parts of the interview actually happens before the interview, and that’s preparation. There are so many wonderful online resources available at your fingertips to research the company and the job that you’re vying for. Let’s talk about where to look and what you need to know to put your best foot forward. We’ll go over what to review, how to practice, and how to prepare for an interview.
