This week is jobs week at NBC10; can video resumes really work?

    Though the unemployment rate stayed steady at 8.3 percent during the month of February, employers added 227,000 jobs to the economy, surpassing economists’ expectations, reports the AP. With foreclosures back on the rise, and student loan debt surpassing credit card debt, NBC10 will spend this coming week helping readers and viewers strengthen their job-hunting skills. 



    NBC’s Job Week begins this coming Monday, March 12. Each day, its Consumer Watch team will be offering helpful tips and highlighting specific job openings  during 5 p.m. broadcasts and each evening, at 7 p.m., on for a 30-minute webinar on job hunting tips.

     Over the course of the week, NBC10 will be highlighting different topics:


    Monday : Resume Help

    Tuesday : Using Social Media for Job Search

    Wednesday : Job Hunt for the “More Mature”
