"Simple Estate Planning" --- John P. Ciocco, Esq. of Hoffman DiMuzio will lead a workshop on preparing for a part of life we don't often like to think about – aging and passing away.

John will lead a wide-ranging discussion concerning basic estate planning techniques that will prepare you and your family for whatever life may bring.

"How to Use the Internet and Social Media to Search and Apply for Jobs" --- Lauri Kuder, Microsoft Office Master, knows that finding a job in the age of technology is not an easy task, as traditional job-hunting methods are no longer sufficient. In this workshop Lauri will teach you how to use social media, including Linked-in, Facebook and Twitter, as part of your job search tool kit. In addition to networking, success in finding employment necessitates having the computer skills to search and apply for jobs online. You must have basic computer knowledge for this workshop.
