You need to select one of these topics for your presentation. There are library resources you can use to find more information.

Topic:  The Evolution of the Job Search Process and Interviewing. Research and discuss the evolution of the job process. Compare and contrast what working from the job search process looked like before COVID-19 impacted the world. Provide details, tips, advice on how to be successful when looking for a job. What is the future of working on the job search and interviewing process? Also, add in any other related elements you feel would benefit the class.

You might have to play around with different keywords or use fewer words to find the right sources you need. For the first topic use the keywords: emotional intelligence AND workplace and then look at the subject headings in the records to find similar articles. For the second topic try the keywords: "job hunting" AND (covid-19 OR coronavirus). For the third topic, try "remote work "AND (covid OR coronavirus).

Use a thesaurus to expand your search. Think of other keywords that mean the same--for example you could use ("job search" OR "job hunting). What other words can you find for job? work, employment., occupation.  You can search using all of those terms (job OR work OR employment OR occupation). What other words can you find for remote? virtual, online? (remote OR virtual OR online).

Once you have your keywords, make a search statement. For example: ("job hunting" OR "job search") AND (virtual OR remote OR online) AND (covid-19 OR coronavirus).
