On Wednesday, Nov. 8 and Nov. 15 from 2 to 4 p.m., the Westfield Memorial Library will present a Resume Writing Workshop. A Tribute to the Grammys will also be presented on Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. The library is located at 550 East Broad Street.
Instructor Karen Camden will present the two-part “Create a Resume in Word” Workshop. Keyboarding skills and a minimum level of Basic Word are required.
Each student who completes both parts of the class will receive Top Ten Tips for a Successful Job Search.
Students should also bring a thumb drive to save their work and for “homework” assignments. The number of library laptops is limited, so students are encouraged to bring their own if possible.
Camden, a frequent speaker at the library, gives computer classes and workshops on organizing, repurposing, gardening and sewing. She is the President of Camden Associates, a consulting firm that provides services in Communications and People Skills, Organizational Assessments and Clutter Control.
Professional vocalist Stan Edwards will present the Grammy Award tribute. This event is a musical toast to the first decade of the Grammy Awards, from 1958 to 1967.
He will perform songs sung by the great artists of that period, from Doris Day, Tony Bennett, Louie Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Louie Prima to Keely Smith. Some of Edwards’ selections include award-winning songs such as “Volaire,” “Mack the Knife,” “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” and “People.”
Edwards has sung at the Village Gate with Dorothy Fields, and Cy Coleman, and has performed in multiple venues ranging from Frank Sinatra's Fountainbleu to the Gas Light Club and Tavern on the Green, as well as television musical shows and a tour with the Tommy Dorsey Band. He and his equally talented wife, Linda Ipanema, who have given several popular performances at the Library, continue to perform together.
