Books on Jobs and Job Searching, Resume Writing, Etc.

Although your credentials may be excellent, and your GPA impressive, the layout of your resume and the wording of your cover letter must be impeccable to compete in today's market.

There are lots of books, guides, and websites to consult while getting all your background information together in an organized, meaningful, and effective way.


If you need funding to pursue great ideas, check these options:

Available Resources

Many of the databases you rely on for scholarly information are proprietary (UWF has to pay for them based on the number of students that use them). Once you graduate, you are always welcome to come back and use our library's resources - in fact we would love to see you again and find out how you are doing in the "real world." Just remember that when you are no longer a student, remote access to our databases will not be an option.

Fortunately, many research facilities and other universities have their own libraries and there is always the local public library. Even if these libraries do not have all you need, they often offer interlibrary loan services.

Don't forget to use the open access resources listed on the Open Education Resources tab. These will remain accessible to you.

Continuing Education

As I said before, we'd love to see you again! We offer many graduate degrees, including a Master of Science in Biology

Even if you are not interested in graduate education or you have moved away from the area, thanks to the convenience of online education, you can always sign up for courses available through e-learning.

You may want to enroll in open courseware available from many prestigious colleges and universities that provide their resources free of charge. Although it may not add to your credentials, it is a great way to absorb current educational offerings. Check the Open Education Resources tab for names and links.
