Introduction to CTC Online – An introduction to the process, connecting with your career counselor, personality type, skills and interests assessments, self-discovery tools and worksheets.
Exit Statement – The exit statement is a document you write that talks about what you have accomplished in your current or last position, why you are looking for a new job, and what you are looking for now.
