Free workshop on job interviews and resume writing by local author Artie Lynnworth
Tuesday, June 27 at 5:30pm

On Tuesday, June 27, 2017, local author Artie Lynnworth will present a free 2-hour workshop for those who want to better prepare for job interviews and improve their resume. The interactive workshop starts at 5:30 p.m. at the Smyth Public Library, 55 High Street, Candia, NH, and will conclude by 7:30 p.m. The event, sponsored by the public library, includes a question and answer session. For more information, contact the library at 603.483.8245.
Lynnworth’s book, entitled “Slice the Salami: Tips for Life and Leadership, One Slice at a Time,” includes chapters on time management, work-life balance and effective communications, plus a special section on how to ace a job or college interview and how to improve your resume so that it stands out from the crowd. Interview preparation and resume writing will be the focus of the June 27th workshop, also covered in his other non-fiction book titled, “Tips for Resumes and Interviews, All in One Hour.”
These books and the workshop are based on Lynnworth’s 40-year highly successful career as a front-line manager and later a senior executive in a worldwide corporation. When asked about the seminar, Lynnworth said, “The tips in my books and the information I plan to share at the library really work. Rather than fancy theories and technical jargon, I enjoy focusing on down-to-earth tips that can be easily understood and quickly applied, in a fun presentation that shows people exactly what they need to do to succeed.”
Lynnworth explained that he once coached an individual who had been taking interviews for over a year without one job offer, and after his brief workshop, the individual got a job the next week. Lynnworth clarified that “The person’s experience did not change in a week. What changed was how he presented his skills to the interviewer in a concise, powerful and effective manner. This is what I teach and what is covered in my book.” Lynnworth suggested that those wondering whether this workshop will be helpful to them should read the customer feedback comments on Amazon’s site for his books. Lynnworth added, “I’ve had one person who used the system I teach get an interview and job offer within 48 hours from submitting her revised resume.”
Lynnworth said he was excited to be conducting this workshop here in Candia NH, close to Nashua, NH, where he and his wife are summer residents in our area. Lynnworth said, “I am proud to be presenting effective interviewing and resume writing tips that work so effectively, and to share this important information in the Candia, NH community.”
Smyth librarian, Heidi Deacon, said, “We are lucky to have Artie Lynnworth in our area and available to provide practical tips for success to our local residents. I hope our area residents take advantage of this helpful workshop.”
