Union County College Continuing Education to Present Resume, Interview Workshops at Convenient Rahway Location

RAHWAY – To accommodate a rising number of students from the Rahway area, Union County College will bring workshops in resume writing and employment interview techniques to participants at the centrally located Rahway site. This location was specifically selected to afford students the opportunity to attend classes without having to travel to a College campus.

The two workshops, “Make Your Resume Work for You” and “Developing Confidence for the Job Interview” will be held on Thursday, December 3 during back-to-back afternoon sessions.

While an individual may have the qualifications for a selected position, it is imperative that the applicant distinguish himself/herself from other, similarly qualified candidates. The classes are presented in a participatory manner with ample opportunity to address individual concerns.

“Make Your Resume Work for You” will cover the rationale behind effective resume writing, getting into the dos and don’ts of the entire process. Various resume styles will be discussed as students review in-class sample resumes while having an assortment of other samples as take-home reference guides. Participants will gain insight into preparing electronic resumes to be scanned into human resource databases, and also learn how to prepare a convincing cover letter to accompany the resume. The course will be held from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.

“Developing Confidence for the Job Interview” will provide attendees with solid information on how to prepare for an employment interview, thus gaining confidence in their ability to “ace” the interview and land a position. Participants will be presented with various types of trick questions that are often asked at interviews, questions that the applicant also should ask, negotiating for the salary, multiple interviews, internal interviews, body language, and closing the interview to their advantage. As time permits, participants will have the opportunity to practice and refine their responses to questions through mock interviews.

The course will be held from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. For registration and more information, call the College’s Office of Continuing Education at (908) 709-7600.

Online registration is available at www.ucc.edu/noncredit.
