Another month, another Video Roundup for the Career Center’s YouTube page! While you were busy cooking for your (socially-distanced) Thanksgiving holiday, we were cooking up some helpful and delicious videos to help you in your career! Let’s have a look.

work-at-home job boards
In this video, Career Coach Anne Nowak talks about the good and the not-so-good about working from home through We Work Remotely, a job board site that focuses on remote and work-from-home jobs.
resumes and cover letters
In this follow-up video to her [Introduction to Cover Letters] video, our Resume Coach, Lynnette Lee, shows you advanced techniques that will really make your cover letter stand out to employers.
moocs (massive open online courses)
In this first of his In-Depth Look at MOOCs series, Rick Wright walks you through Coursera, one of the more popular MOOCs on the Net.

job interview questions
Job interviewers will routinely ask about your previous professional life, both the good and the bad, and you should be ready. In this short role-play video by Anne and Lynnette, they show you good and bad answers to this question.
job search basics
During the pandemic, we at the Career Center have been seeing more and more people come into our office to apply for unemployment benefits. While that’s not *exactly* our mission, we’ve been doing our best to help, and Anne has made this video walking you through the basics of filing for unemployment in Louisiana.
