There were two changes that were requested by a number of those who attended the library’s one hour afternoon classes on Applying for a Job Online. The first was that it should be longer. One hour was not enough time. The second was that the class should be offered in the evening when more people could attend. The library listened.
This Wednesday, November 28th, the Newton Free Library will be offering a two hour “Introduction to Job Hunting and Resumes Online.” It will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 in the evening in the computer training room on the second floor of the library. If you are frustrated in your search for work and feel you need additional help, please give this class a try. Even if you have been to one of the earlier classes, you will find new insight and suggestions in this restructured class. John Walsh, the Assistant Head of Reference, will be teaching the class. I was his backup in the talk he did on Optimal Resume this past September. Trust me, it will be two hours very well spent and it will not be boring. What you take away could just give you the edge you’ve been looking for.
If you would like to attend, please call (617) 796-1380 to register, or speak to a Reference Librarian at one of our information desks. Pre-registration is required. However, if for some reason you cannot call, still come. There is usually room for one more. Often, even when a class is full, one or two people who have pre-registered do not make it. Come. Learn. Enjoy.
