Hey Ron,

My Name is Andrei and I just came across your career resources page.

As this page has some really great resources, I thought you may also be interested in some free professional resume templates I put together here:

These templates could make a nice addition to your career resources page and provide a lot of value to your visitors.

Thanks for the resource. I added a link on the Career Resources page.

Want a job with Google or Facebook

Topic: General


January 30, 2018

sir, i am a 11th class student from india .what should i do for becoming an software engineer at top it compneies like google and facebook.

yogesh - India



It is good to have a dream of becoming a software engineer with companies such as Google and Facebook.

You can get information from Google Jobs and Facebook Careers.

However, it is best to start near home, perhaps getting an apprenticeship with an IT company in your community. You really need some good experience before getting hired with a major company.

Best wishes for success in achieving your goals. I am sure you will do well.

Product design engineering career guide

Topic: Resources


December 7, 2015


I wanted to reach out and share a resource which I think your students will benefit from.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has identified product design engineering as a field that is likely to see strong job growth in future years, so in conjunction with Pannam we have put together a guide for anyone considering a career in this area:

I think this would make a valuable addition to this page -, alongside the other career resources you have shared.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

All the best,

Greetings from EducatorLabs!

I’m Kathleen, and I work part-time with the EducatorLabs team to research and share useful resources with information-seeking individuals.

Today, my sights are set on jobs… Why, you ask? Well, with 2016 approaching, most of us will make resolutions and seek a fresh start and, for many, this involve a job search.

To assist those looking for help, I spent some time putting together a list of resources, which I wanted to share with you because I thought your site visitors would find them useful.

It’s my goal to encourage 50 people to share these resources in an effort to help others find their dreams in 2016. Let me know if you’re one of the 50 who has decided to stand up and help!

Thank you - and Happy 2016!

Kathleen - USA



Thanks for the suggested resources. I added them to Career Resources and some to Entrepreneur Resources.

I’d like to make a suggestion to improve this page of your website -

Many of us find ourselves working in an industry or vocation that just doesn’t provide job satisfaction and we might consider a career change; at this point we ask ourselves which job are we most suited to.

That’s where a personality test can be helpful and I’d like to draw your attention to this free one -

To give you some context, ImprovEDU is a volunteer-run organization focused on highlighting noteworthy educational resources. I’m getting in touch with you today because you’ve shared similar information in the past and I feel the above would be of benefit to your visitors, if you’d prefer not to hear from me again please let me know and I will ensure you receive no further emails from our organization.

Thanking you in advance for your time and consideration.

Kind regards

Joel - USA



Thanks for the suggest link. I added it to the Career Resources page.

Let me know when your website is up, and I'll add a link to it from our Education Resources page.
