SOMERVILLE – The Somerville Public Library is pleased to announce two new workshops for job seekers.  These workshops will be presented by Gary Gekow, a Senior Employment Specialist with 24 years of recruiting experience in the Boston staffing industry. Mr. Gekow works closely with client companies in many industries and job seekers in various specialties.  Dates and topics of the workshops are listed below. All workshops will be held at the Central Branch Library, 79 Highland Avenue, as follows:

  • Interview Workshop: Wednesday, June 20th, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

This is an interactive and informal question and answer session where we role-play typical interview questions and how best to answer them.  The workshop also includes ways to avoid job candidates’ most common interview mistakes. 

  • Online Job Search and Résumé Submittal Workshop: Wednesday, June 27th, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

We will analyze numerous online search strategies including job alerts, job boards, job aggregators, and company employment pages.  We will then discuss how to best utilize these websites when submitting one’s résumé.

These free workshops are the final two in a series of three that has been funded by a generous grant from the Tufts Neighborhood Service Fund, an organization which supports local non-profits in Somerville and other communities.
