FREE! Job interview help program, take advantage of it!!

Most job interviews are free -- unless you have to travel a long way or buy a bunch of new clothes for it, get lunch, pay parking, fill the gas tank -- etc, etc.
And, professional help with getting ready for them can get expensive.
Until now......
Kudos to the Wissahickon Valley Public Library and RSVP for organizing this PROGRAM . Many people do not have access to these kind of services. So take advantage.

Here's the full press release sent from them .....

Free Job Interviews

Wissahickon Valley Public Library has teamed up with the executives from RSVP to offer Mock Job Interviews at the library, 650 Skippack Pike, Blue Bell, Call RSVP to set up a free appointment to practice interviewing skills and be prepared for your next job appointment. Call Janis at RSVP 610-834-1040 extension 16. Pick a time that is convenient for you. Choose an interviewer and you are set to go. Before the interview, stop by the library to pick up a Sample Employment Application and Interviewing Tips with Mock Interview Questions.

This new program is another way your library is helping to serve your community during these times of employment and economic change. Anne Frank, Library Director, has teamed up with Janis Glusman of RSVP to develop this interview program.

RSVP, Retired & Senior Volunteer Program, has three executives who will help you brush up and fine tune your interviewing skills. Jerry Bapst works for the Logistics Management Institute in Washington, DC. Previously he was a manager with AT&T and Johnson & Johnson and has years of experience in interviewing candidates.

Richard Singer has an MBA in Finance from Adelphi University and has worked at Aramark Corporation, Allied Domecq QSR, consulted with numerous companies and serves as board member or treasurer with several regional non-profit organizations.

Joe Wehr was Business Manager for Nike for fourteen years. He was responsible for all the financial and operational activities for field sales and marketing. He spent much of his time interviewing and hiring for all positions.

In addition, the library also offers a resume review service. Bring in a resume and have the professional reference staff go over it with you and offer hints and tips to change or refocus the writing or simply polish up the presentation. Both the resume review and the Mock Interviews are free services.

Also, while at the library, check out one of the many books on job searching and resume writing. A library card is the Smartest Card: Get It. Use It @Your Library. Remember: Your Public Library is a Center for Lifelong Learning.
