On Thursday May 29th, from 6:45 PM to 8:30 PM, we are holding a program that walks you through building a LinkedIn profile for job hunters.   If you’re interested in attending, please REGISTER now. 

 

This class is not suitable for those with limited computer skills.  You will need to bring a laptop or tablet to the session.

Please see the full notes below or on the registration page.

“Most employers automatically turn to LinkedIn to research potential job candidates and a recent poll said that 89% of companies plan to recruit through LinkedIn. If you don’t have a LinkedIn profile, you may miss out on some valuable job search opportunities.


This fast-paced program takes you through the steps needed to design a strong, complete, “All Star” LinkedIn profile. You will create an accounting of your work experience including a Summary Statement, Experience, Skills, Education, and Outside Activities. You will also learn the technique needed to be seen on the first three pages of a LinkedIn People Search.

This class is for job seekers, and is not appropriate for those with limited computer skills. Attendees will not be instructed or assisted with basic computer navigation. Please review our basic computer class offerings if you are unsure of your computer skills.

Enrollment is strictly limited and you will need to bring a laptop or tablet to the session. A limited number of library laptops may be available for use with advance arrangements.”

On Monday May 12 and 19, the Libray is holding a free class on Microsoft’s Excel 2007 at 10:30 am – 12:00 pm (both days) in the Community Room.

Learn the basics of this popular software program designed for storing, organizing and manipulating data. This class will discuss the parts of a spreadsheet, including columns, rows and cells. Participants will create a basic spreadsheet during class.

You must be able to use a mouse and be familiar with basic computer concepts such as opening, closing, and resizing windows before taking this class.

Class size is strictly limited, and registration is required. PLEASE NOTE: This class is the same on both days. Registrants will be limited to one of two sessions.

Please sign up here for May 12 and here for May 19.
