Larchmont Mamaroneck Center for Continuing Education has responded to the challenging economic times by adding two classes to its career and finance section, one on resume writing and the other on investment loss recovery. Both classes will be taught this spring.
How to Write a Professional Resume: Updating your resume is crucial in today’s job market. In this class, you will learn tips from an expert so your resume will make a powerful first impression. The instructor, Willa Beth Salles has over fifteen years of experience in the financial search industry. She understands what hiring managers are looking for.
This class is being offered on Monday, April 20 from 7:30 – 9:30 pm in the Palmer Building of Mamaroneck High School and Wednesday, April 22 from 10:00 am – 12 noon at the Larchmont Temple. The fee is $45.
Investment Loss Recovery: The preparation of this year’s tax return is more complicated than ever. In this class, taught by Neil Lubarsky, Esq., you will discover under what circumstances you may be legally entitled to recover your investment losses. Discussed will be how to legally offset taxes with losses resulting from theft or fraud, such as what happened to investors involved in the Madoff scheme. Mr. Lubarsky, a Harvard trained attorney with a Masters in Tax Law, has over 28 years experience in securities arbitration. He also teaches Preserving Family Assets in the Current Environment with Continuing Education.
The Investment Loss Recovery class will be held on Tuesday, May 8 from 8 – 9 pm in the Palmer Building of MHS; the fee is $25.
Sandie Conner, director of Continuing Education, said, “In addition to these classes, our spring term includes two classes taught by local CPA and tax attorney Cindy Goldstein, Financial Management for Women and Money Matters for Young Adults.
“One of our goals is to remain current and recognize the needs of the community. Looking forward, we plan to expand our fall program and include classes such as investment and job search strategies and how to deal with the stress of a job or financial loss.”
