July 29, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • Page 23 Waldwick Watch Library offers free resume coaching A persuasive and compelling resume is an essential tool for selling your services, talents, and skills to a prospective employer. As an outreach to individuals seeking employment in these difficult economic times, former executive recruiter, technical writer, and engineer Merrill Rutman will offer private 30-minute resume-coaching sessions at the Waldwick Public Library during the month of August. To get the most value from the coaching session, job seekers should bring a current resume, an outdated resume, or a list of previous positions and responsibilities. Instruction will cover the essential components of an effective resume and the information you will need to prepare or improve a resume on your own. The schedule of coaching sessions is as follows: Monday afternoons from 1 from 4 p.m. on Aug. 3, 10, or 24; Tuesday evenings 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Aug. 4, 11, 18, or 25. Rutman first began helping others prepare resumes during the economic recession of the early 1990s, when he founded and ran a successful job-search cooperative for engineers. Since then, he has coached dozens of job candidates in honing their resumes to more effectively secure interviews. Resume coaching sessions are free and open to the public; however, space is limited and registration is required. For more information call (201) 652-5104.

The photography of Vincent Criqui will be on display at the Waldwick Public Library now through Monday, Aug. 31. The 27 works in the exhibit feature a mix of black-and-white and color photographs on subjects ranging from nature to travel. Photographs of local subjects such as the Great Falls of the Passaic River and scenes of the Allendale Celery Farm are interspersed with shots of the more exotic locales of Hawaii, Italy, and Greece. Particularly eye catching are a close-up of a spider on a dewdampened web and a shot of shimmering moonlight on rushing water. Criqui retired in June following a 36year career as a teacher in the Waldwick Public Schools. He has had an interest in photography for many years and recently worked in an advisory role to students in the Waldwick Middle School Photography Club. According to Criqui, “A camera is my customary traveling companion, and I try to see things as they would look in a frame. Making ordinary things look extraordinary is something important to me. I look for something special in each of my shots.” The library is located at 19 East Prospect Street in Waldwick. Hours of operation are Monday through Thursday, 10 to 9 and Friday and Saturday, 10 to 5. For more information, call (201) 652-5104.
