      In today's market, up to 85% of jobs are secured through networking.  LinkedIn is the professional business social media/networking site.  But you can't just post your profile and expect to hear from a recruiter or get a job. Through the Groups and the Q & A sections, you can more effectively market yourself and network your way to recognition.  Learn some of the ins and outs of LinkedIn, and strategies that can put you ahead of the competition, including:

              * The word that every job-seeker should have in their headline

              * How to use updates so your network hears from you on a regular basis

              * Why you should join groups and what to do once you've joined them

      Elaine Bloom has a degree in history from NYU and has spent much of her life in various types of publishing including working for large book publishers in New York City and a family special-interest newspaper business based in Newark.  Always interested in the intersection of technology, communications and information dissemination she's moved from working mainly with print media to the world of the Internet.  Since 2008 she's been helping people to get the most out of LinkedIn.

      Homegrown Archaeologist speaks on Ancient and Modern Egyptian Cultures

      It turns out the oldest seafaring ships ever found actually work... Ship planks and oar blades discovered in 2006 at the caves of Wadi Gawasis provided a basis for the ship reconstruction.
      Location: 432 Wyoming Ave, Millburn, NJ 07041
      When: May 15, 2011
      Time: 11:15am–12:15pm

      Did you know that 4,000 years ago Egyptian engineers were able to build sea-worthy cargo vessels inland, along the Nile, then dismantle them stick by stick, transport them across the desert by donkey to the Red Sea, and then rebuild them according to some sort of number or color code?

      If you didn't that may be because archaeologists have only recently discovered a treasure-trove of artifacts that tell the story.

      Don't miss this opportunity to  hear Maplewood/South Orange native Tracy Spurrier talk about the revolutionary discoveries she has been a part of in the Middle Kingdom Port Site of Wadi Gawasis on the Egyptian Red Sea Coast. Instead of mummies, she has been a part of discovering some of the oldest remnants of seagoing ships and other relics linked to exotic trade with a mysterious Red Sea realm called Punt

      Packing for PuntAncient and Modern activities at the Middle Kingdom Port Site of Wadi Gawasis on the Egyptian Red Sea Coast

      A one-time opportunity to hear her lecture and ask her questions about her finds. Archaeology buff?  Yes, please!

      Tracy Spurrier grew up in the Maplewood/South Orange area and attended South Orange Middle School and Columbia High School. She has a bachelor’s degree in Archaeology fromBoston University, a Master’s Degree in Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations from the University of Toronto, and is currently a doctoral student studying The Archaeology of the Ancient Near East at the University of Toronto. She has worked on excavations in Spain, Egypt, and Syria.
