Monroe Township Public Library Arranges Resume Training

The Monroe Township Public Library

The Monroe Township Public Library is hosting free virtual resume writing training on Feb. 25 from 7-7:45 p.m. via Zoom  to educate anyone who is interested in learning how to write professional resumes.

Jennifer Rojas, a reference librarian at the Monroe Township Public Library, said it is being presented by Constance Hallinan Lagan, director of the Entrepreneurial Center for Small Business Development.  

“The speaker is really good with resume components, building and formatting,” said Rojas, “With COVID-19 and people losing their jobs, the goal is to help both adults who are re-entering the workforce and young adults trying to enter, build a professional resume.” 

According to the Monroe Township Public Library’s website, topics will include formats, resume components, resume tips, cover letters, reference lists, letters of recommendation and the purpose of the resume. 

Charlotte Quigley, director of career services at MC, said, “Libraries are great sources of information. I am a fan of students attending anything - especially free events - that are helpful to them as they develop their professional skills.” 

April Gorman, a MC student, said, “I would recommend that my friends go, and I would go if one of them wanted to go with me. If they had no idea how to build a resume it would be very useful to learn. It’s a skill that everyone should know, and can make a difference in getting the job they want.” 

According to the Monroe Township Public Library’s website, the Zoom call’s meeting ID is 848-6260-6489 and the passcode is 020359.
