3. Learn how to utilize your assessment results to self-market in your career development and job search, including how these can inform the development of a unique value proposition, and a more focused resume.

*Participants will receive a tutorial utilizing the results of their assessments, that will describe how to maximize use of the extensive O*Net database in their career planning, including exploring information on careers, accessing current labor market trends, salary information, and career exploration resources.
