Resources for Those Needing Career Planning or Job Search Assistance
The Career Center at Boise State exists to serve Boise State students and alumni; therefore, community members are not eligible for the majority of our in-person services. However, community members are welcome to utilize our Virtual Career Center.
Here are some additional resources you may find helpful:
- Idaho Department of Labor – Services may include career assessment inventories, career information, job search guidance, assistance with applications, resumes, cover letters, and interviewing assistance. They offer workshops on a variety of job search topics as well as job clubs/networking groups, and host a variety of job fairs. They also have an employment resource center for all your job-seeking activities. Note: eligibility for particular services may depend on your situation. Check with the Department of Labor for more information.
- Center for New Directions – Note: The Center for New Directions is a service of the College of Western Idaho. To be eligible for their services, you must meet certain criteria. Check with the Center for New Directions for more information. They assist single parents, displaced homemakers, and those pursuing careers typically held by the opposite gender, who are interested in CWI’s Career and Technical Education, Basic Skills Education, General Education Development, or English as a Second Language programs. They may provide career and educational counseling, assessment and testing, training in life skills, and pre-employment and pre-training preparation.
