Surviving the Job Search: You Want What?!

Go behind the scenes with Neil Berger, on Wednesday, October 9 at 7:00 pm at Bernardsville Public Library, and he will share his more than thirty years’ experience in the interview process as a Human Resources professional—from ‘screening interview’ to job offer. Whether you are between jobs, exploring career options or returning to the work world, you’ll come away with information and tools to help you land your next job.

Some of the topics that will be covered include formulating a 2-minute biography to answer the question, "Tell me about yourself"; interview etiquette; dealing with employment agencies, search firms and other third-party recruiters; identifying legal and illegal interview questions; and negotiating a realistic salary.

Neil Berger has more than thirty-five years of teaching experience. After five years as a New York City high school English teacher, he joined the private sector, first as a training specialist, then as Manager of Training and Development for Chemical Bank (which later became part of Chase Bank) and then as Director of Training and Development for a 4000-employee manufacturer before becoming a Director of Human Resources for an international conglomerate responsible for recruiting, training, benefits, labor relations and compensation.  His experience includes the financial community, retailing, transportation, manufacturing, and the not-for-profit community.  At the same time, he taught business writing as an adjunct lecturer at Hunter College for fourteen semesters.  He has a BA in English; an MA in Education and an MBA in Management.

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