Improve Your Resume Building and Interviewing Techniques
Friday, September 27, 2013 - 15:58
Looking to improve your resume building skills and/or interviewing techniques? JCPL is partnering with Jefferson County Workforce to offer several training sessions this month on each topic at our Arvada and Belmar Libraries.
During the Resume Basics sessions, you'll learn about the three basic types of resumes, and how to avoid making the most common resume mistakes that could instantly count you out of the running for any job that you are applying for. Current, updated information and a standard that identifies what employers and businesses are looking for will also be provided.
The Interview Techniques workshop will teach you how to display confidence in selling yourself to a potential employer. You'll also learn about the importance of marketing yourself, interpersonal communication, and professional dress. This course will provide interviewing techniques that will boost your confidence.
As part of this year's One Book. 1 Golden program, author Kent Haruf will read from Benediction, answer questions from the audience and conduct a book signing. Books by Haurf will be available to purchase at the event from Boulder Bookstore.
This year’s annual One Book 1 Golden features Benediction, a powerful novel by Kent Haruf. Haruf is known for writing books that bring small-town Colorado to life and this book is a fitting selection for the close-knit community of Golden.
One of the more powerful chapters in the book deals with Reverend Lyle’s controversial message based on the Sermon on the Mount. Is violence ever warranted as revenge? Is there such a thing as a “just” war? This sermon ultimately leads to the reverend’s dismissal.
This chapter sparked one of the programs I’m most looking forward to - a panel discussion with leaders from the local faith community on “turning the other cheek” and its relevance in today’s world.
Jefferson County Public Library and the Wheat Ridge Cultural Commission invite you to meet Obmascik in person and share in his rollicking, witty, sometimes harrowing, often poignant account of scaling all 54 of Colorado’s 14,000-foot mountains.
Wheat Ridge Recreation Center Sept. 10, 6 p.m. and Sept. 14, 9 a.m.
Events for the 2013 One Book. 1 Golden. program begin this month, kicking off with a book discussion group featuring this year’s selection, Benediction by Kent Haruf. We will also be featuring a panel discussion on "turning the other cheek" with local faith leaders and a photo contest designed to showcase what makes Golden so special.
The program culminates with a reading a book signing with Kent Haruf!
We've got a great event happening in a few weeks at the Arvada Library. Join us from 6-8:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20 for our first ever Books and Bites night. More than 30 local authors will be on hand for you to talk with. Kids, teens, fiction, non-fiction, history, sci-fi…nearly every genre will be covered!
Talking to all these amazing authors may work up your appetite. Not to worry, though, there will be some great food trucks out in Olde Town Square for you to replenish your energy. Sample delicious fare from Hey PB&J, Scrumptious, CKrepes and Eighty Ate while you're there!
