Empowering Experienced Professionals for Successful Career Transitions
A MESSAGE FROM THE 40 PLUS BOARD CHAIR
We have some great news to share with our alumni! Our 2019 Member Survey has confirmed what we’ve always believed:
Our wonderful 40 Plus volunteer facilitators and staff are making a tremendous difference in our alumni’s lives!
Of the 126 alumni that responded to our survey, 70% indicate that they were unemployed when they took the course, and now, 64% of them are currently either employed or self-employed, with 48% indicating they are employed, and 16% indicating they are self-employed.
And for the best news of all, 39% of the 126 alumni respondents indicated that they were able to achieve at least the same salary level they had before their lay-off—that is 4 times greater than the national average! And what’s more, 15% indicated that they were able to negotiate more than a 10% salary increase! I hope you will agree that this is fabulous news with which to close out this year!
Please help us to breakeven in 2019 ---we truly need your help. There are bills that must be paid to provide our much-needed services---so we truly depend on your kindness and generosity to continue to support our alumni and Washington area professionals. A $50 donation would help us tremendously to cover the increased costs at our new location.
Please give, if you can, by pressing the “Donate” button, or send a check to 1325 G Street NW, Suite 500, Washington DC 20005.
