JVS Job-Seekers Virtual Workshop: How to Job Search Over 50

February 22 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

PLEASE NOTE: This event is virtual and advance registration is required. 

If you are over fifty you no doubt will experience some ageism during your job search.

What are some of the strategies you can employ to combat ageism?

Explore strategies including online learning, technology, research, negotiation, and presentation skills.

What you say and how you come across will be just as important as the skills you bring to the table.

We will also discuss deciding your next step, such as working part-time, continuing to work full-time, start a consulting business, volunteer on a non-profit board and other options.

There will be 20 minutes of open networking with fellow job seekers after the presentation.
