This guide is designed to assist you in your career research for your PSYC 2302 WIN/R class.

How to use this Guide

This guide is primarily designed to assist you in your career investigation research for your Occupational Portfolio. The south campus librarians hope that you will also refer to this LibGuide when you have research assignments in other classes as you continue your studies at TCC.

Use the "O*net and others" tab above to find links to O*net and similar job skills websites. "The Library is your friend" tab will take you to information on using the TCC libraries and how to expand your horizons by using other libraries as well. The "Websites for WINRs" tab will take you to a list of weblinks that have been suggested by your WINR instructors.

For more in-depth information about using the TCC libraries, see our Library Research Overview LibGuide. Of course, you can always ask a librarian for help, either come in the library or give us a call during operating hours at (817) 515-4524, or ask a librarian online.

We're here to help!
