Summer recreation registration underway The Borough of Waldwick strongly recommends that the fee and registration process for the summer recreation program be completed prior to the first day of the program on Monday, July 6. The preregistration process was designed to enable the directors and counselors to devote their full attention to participating children by relieving them of the clerical duties associated with registration. It also saves residents time by avoiding the long lines and allows the children to enjoy the day without any delay. The registration form can be downloaded from the borough’s website www. waldwicknj.org. The completed form, accompanied by the $20 payment, can be mailed to the borough administrator’s office at 63 Franklin Turnpike, Waldwick, NJ 07463.

Resume coaching offered at library A persuasive and compelling resume is an essential tool for selling 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 free private 30-minute coaching sessions at the Waldwick Library during the month of June. To get the most value from the coach- ing session, job seekers should bring a current resume, an outdated resume, or a list of previous positions and responsibilities.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 needed to prepare or improve a resume. The schedule of coaching sessions is as follows: Monday from 1 to 4 p.m. on June 22, or 29; and Tuesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on June 16, 23, or 30. 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. To schedule a 30-minute appointment, call the library at (201) 652-5104.
