How to Find Job and Skills Videos
Kristan Halpern, Last modified by Kristan Halpern October 01 2015 03:58 PM

Ferguson's Career Guidance Center includes many job and skills videos, which are now searchable. You can also browse for videos on the site.


To search for videos:


Videos are now included in the general Ferguson's search. If you do a search and the search result set includes videos, "Video" will appear in the list of result types on the right of the results page (under "Narrow Results by Type"). To filter results to only show videos, you can select the Video checkbox under "Narrow Results by Type". Also, each item in search results includes the result type in gray text.


If you prefer, you can use Advanced Site Search to limit a particular search to videos in advance. Go to the Advanced Search page, select the "Video" checkbox in the "Narrow Results by Type" section, enter your search term(s) in the search field, and then click the Search button. 



To view Career Q&A Videos:


Career Q&A videos are now available in Ferguson's Career Guidance Center. In each Career Q&A video, a working professional answers questions about his or her job, education, and industry—from the main duties, how the interviewee got started in his or her career, and required education or training, to the workplace atmosphere, a typical day on the job, the industry's main goals and challenges, advice to young people entering the profession, and much more.


Simply select Career Q&A Videos on the Explore Industries & Careers menu at the top to access a full list of available Q&A videos. Or click "View All" under Career Q&A Videos on the right side of the Home page. If a Career Q&A video is available for a particular profession, you will see a Watch Career Q&A Video button in the upper right of the profession profile. 


To browse for videos:

  1. Click "Explore Industries & Careers" on the top navigation bar and then select "Industry Overviews and Profession Profiles" on the drop-down menu or click "Launch Your Career" on the top navigation bar and then select "Career Skills" on the drop-down menu.
  2. In the Browse Videos box on the right, click the "More" link to go to the Video Gallery page.
  3. You can use the drop-down menu at the top of the gallery page to switch among All Videos, Job Videos, and Skills Videos.
  4. To open a particular video page, click on the video image on the gallery page.
