Finance & Employment

Questions about managing your personal finances?  There are resources available to help you manage bank accounts, learn about saving money, understand loans, and learn budgeting skills.

Preparing for employment, whether it's a part-time job or career, is important.  You can access resources to help you build a resume, construct a cover letter, match your interests with career opportunities, and learn helpful skills to succeed in the workplace.  Remember, if you love what you do, you'll never "work" a day in your life.
