Learn The Art of Interviewing @ Bernardsville Library

It’s almost a truism that “the resume gets you an interview, and the interview gets you the job.” As part of its series of workshops to help job seekers in the toughest job market in decades, Bernardsville Public Library is hosting a program on the art of interviewing—the skill that improves your chance of standing out from the crowd. Career counselor Mona Witman will speak on the topic at the library on Thursday, March 4 at 10:00 am. Ms. Witman is a Career Counselor with The Women’s Center at the County College of Morris and works with college students, displaced homemakers and the general community. She has been giving career and job search advice for over 30 years.

During the program, Ms. Witman will cover the do’s and don’t of the interview process. Other topics will include how to prepare for an interview, the different types of interviews, examples of frequently asked questions, and responses and questions that the interviewee should ask during the meeting. Resources and handouts on training programs, resume writing and interviewing skills will be distributed.

Ms. Witman received her master’s degree from Columbia Teachers College, New York. She was formerly the director of the Roxbury Career Counseling Center in Succasunna and has lectured extensively throughout New Jersey on career issues.

There is no charge to attend the program, but advance sign-up is requested. Register online at and follow the link under Adult Programs, or call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up.
