A well written resume is a vital part of a successful job search. Greenwich Library's Peterson Business Series will present "Resume Writing: Proven Techniques" on Saturday, July 19 at 11:00 a.m. in the Meeting Room.
"If you want to start looking for a new job and need to rewrite or update your resume, creating a document that works is an important part of job-hunting success," says presenter Ellen Mehling. "This workshop will cover the basics of resume writing, with tips and advice, including what not to do."
The workshop will teach participants how to make their resumes stand out from the competition and how to tailor a resume to a specific position. Participants will also learn to understand what HR professionals are looking for and how to prepare their resumes for scanning.
Mehling has taught job hunting and researching classes at METRO Training Center, high schools and colleges. She received her MLS and Certificate of Advanced Studies in Archives from Long Island University. She is a librarian in the Queens Library Job Information Center.
Mehling will review via email an existing resume for the first five people who email Wynne Delmhorst at firstname.lastname@example.org. Those chosen will be notified by email. This workshop is offered for free through the support of the Peterson Foundation. For more information, please contact Wynne Delmhorst at 203-622-7921.
