We are proud to announce the launch of two new career and graduate school resources, provided by DISCUS, South Carolina’s Virtual Library.

Here is a brief description of each, from the DISCUS website:

Ferguson’s Career Guidance Center
  • Complete career research database of jobs, skills, and resources
  • Information on more than 3,300 jobs and 94 industries, organized by the 16 career clusters created by the U.S. Department of Education
  • Articles and videos providing advice on job applications, the interview process, professional
  • behavior, career skills, and more
  • Sample resumes and cover letters
  • Searchable entries on scholarships, internships, fellowships, and more
LearningExpress Library
  • Comprehensive collection of test-preparation tools, skill-building materials, and other career and life skills resources
  • Practice tests for job and career goals, graduate school (such as the LSAT, GRE, GMAT, MCAT), and Praxis II exams
  • Focus on workplace skills such as resume building, interviewing, job search and assessment, business writing, and core computer skills
  • Tools for improving proficiency levels in reading, writing, and math for elementary school learners through adults

From test preparation to interview skills and everything in between, these two new resources will get you ready for life after Coker (and might help you succeed on the way there)!

If you have any questions about these or any other resources, please feel free to ask!


  1. I give up on the bulleted lists, Donnie. It looks great in preview, but won't work live.

    Anyway, these are great resources especially the grad school entrance test preparation sections.


  2. This looks great. You both are doing a great job.
