| No Comments

From the LIbrary:

The Metuchen Public Library, 480 Middlesex Avenue, will sponsor the following free college-prep programs in August for Metuchen residents who will be entering grades 10-12. Both workshops and both practice tests have limited space; registration is required. To sign up, please visit the Library, or call 732.632.8526, or write KLiss@Lmxac.org. Metuchen residents should register early as the programs will be open to others later on. 

A Teen Resume Writing Workshopwill be held on Friday August 24 from 1 PM until 2:15 PM. The program is designed especially for students going into 10th-12th grade. During this hands-on workshop, participants will learn the important components of a good resume and how to explore opportunities that build experience during the teen years. Sample student resumes will be distributed and each participant will have a chance to work in small groups to outline his/her own. You'll leave the workshop prepared to write a resume, which you can use and tailor throughout your high school and college careers.


The College Interview Workshop will be held on Tuesday, August 28 from 1 PM until 2:15 PM and is open to 11th and 12th grade students. Learn why it is important to make an official visit to a college before you apply and what to expect from the tour, the information session and the interview. Sample interview questions will be provided and participants will work one-on-one with their peers to practice the skills that make for a stand out applicant. 

In addition: 
A Free Practice SAT will be offered to Metuchen residents in grades 11 and 12 on Wednesday, August 22 from 12:30 PM until 5 PM by the Kaplan Test Prep Company at the Library. (If space allows, registration opens for others who are NOT Metuchen residents on August 14.) 
A Free Practice ACT will be offered to Metuchen residents in grades 11 and 12 on Thursday, August 30 from 12:30 PM until 4:30 PM by the Kaplan Test Prep Company at the Library. (If space allows, registration opens for others who are NOT Metuchen residents on August 21.)
