The September class for “Applying for a Job Online” will be held at the Newton Free Library on Thursday, September 30, from 2:30 t0 3:30. There is a large amount of material to go over, so classes can sometimes run overtime. You will be given handouts of everything covered in class. You should be able to follow the handouts and do at home what we do in class. There are only ten computer stations so we ask you to call us and register to save your place. The phone number is 1-617-796-1380.
Copies of the handouts have recently been added to the library website. If you live too far away to come to class, you should still be able to put the handouts to good use. Click here to get to them directly. This brings you to the “Class Materials and Other Resources.” To get here from the Newton Free Library homepage, go to www.newtonfreelibrary.net and put your cursor on the “Services” option near the top right of the page. Then choose “Computer, IT & Classes.” Near the bottom of the list that appears is “Class Materials and Other Resources.” Handouts 3, 4, and 5 have been completely updated as of June 11th. Handout 6, “Saving a Resume to Plain Text,” was updated on June 4th. All contain instructions combined with screenshots. You may have to wait for a second or two for the screenshots to download. Click on each handout to look at them online. Feel free to print out any of interest. If you teach a job search class, you may use any of this material if you credit the source. See the end of each handout. If you have any difficulty downloading a handout in Internet Explorer, try it in the Mozilla Firefox browser.
