Career Focus

Know thyself.Socrates

In career development, self-knowledge is everything. In a career, you can be
two or three degrees off course and walk into a wall, instead of through a doorway.
You don't have to be far off to have it fail.

Changes in the economy find many people between jobs, thinking of changing jobs, or re-entering the workforce, and the public library can be a most powerful job search tool, helping them save time and energy. Job seekers are especially invited to use the resources provided at Bernards Township Library, and to attend two upcoming programs of special relevance.

Upcoming Events at the Library
Your Job Search @ the Library
Tuesday, June 9, 2009, from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.

Ruth Lufkin, Supervising Reference Librarian at Bernards Township Library, will feature creative ways to find golden opportunities through mining the Library's resources. Ruth will discuss and demonstrate online and print tools that make career exploration and transition easier, and showcase materials of special interest to job seekers.

She will describe ways to prospect for information on particular industries, pinpoint potential employers, and dredge for nuggets of company data.

Death by Document: the Marketing Resume
Thursday, June 11, 2009, from 7:30 – 8:45 p.m.

Lloyd L. Feinstein, president and founder of Career Marketing Consultants of New Providence, NJ. will examine the myths surrounding the construction of a resume, including length, audience for the document and their motivators, basis of the hiring decision, electronic vs. hard copy, prejudices vs. full disclosure, etc. In addition the three problems that exist in everyone's resume will be reviewed and discussed in detail. Participants are encouraged to bring a current copy of their resume to the program. A resume quiz will also be administered.
