Event Description

This two-part online class will be held on January 24 and 31, 2013 from 1:00 - 2:00 pm. Students must attend both sessions.

This class will help prepare you to assist job seekers in your library. 

The course will focus on:

  • the new rules for creating effective resumes
  • how to create a resume using MS Word and how to customize a resume for online job applications
  • how to utilize LinkedIn and other online job resources
  • assisting users on saving their resume in an accessible method for future access (Cloud-computing/USBs, etc.)

Between classes, attendees will each be asked to work on a project useful to them - or one suggested in class. One-on-one assistance with the instructor will be provided during this time.

This class will be delivered online. Log-in information will be emailed approximately one week before the course.
