There is so much advice and information out there on how to write a resume that just getting started can feel overwhelming. Which format to use and what information to include is just couple of the questions one might ask when writing a resume. Seeking professional guidance is a good place to start.
The Kingston Public Library is pleased to welcome back career consultant, Gary Gekow, for two online programs. The first program is entitled Resume Writing and will be on Zoom on January 25 at 6:00 PM. The program will begin with a brief demonstration of the Library’s online cover letter and resume resources and how to use them before Mr. Gekow delivers his program. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and get advice. Another online program is planned for February with Mr. Gekow.
Gary Gekow is a Senior Employment Specialist and Career Coach with 30 years of recruiting and employment services experience in the Boston staffing industry. He works closely with client companies in many industries and job seekers in various specialties. His past programs at the Kingston Public Library were well received by those in attendance.
A Zoom link will be sent to your email address after registration is complete.
Matt Heaton believes music for kids can be entertaining for both children AND parents. His songs are a mix of rockabilly, surf, American roots and Irish traditional music, delivered with a wry sense of humor and a sincere sense of fun. Children and adults respond to his musicianship and variety. The adults in the room particularly appreciate the Muppet-esque touches of humor and observations of kid behavior. Whether you call it children’s music, family music, kindie or toddlerbilly it’s sure to please listeners of all ages.
Through a Library Services and Technology Act Grant, the Kingston Public Library has teamed up with the Kennedy Donovan Center to bring you virtual sensory storytimes.
