    Success Stories from the Job Hunt

    with Mika Yamashita, Ken Schoppmann and John Wilhelm Jr.


    This special edition of the Monday speaker series features a panel of successful job seekers who share their stories from the employment front.

     The panelists come from a range of different work backgrounds -- a finance specialist, an executive with associations, and a program analyst/budget analyst. They all went through a career transition period -- and came out of it successfully.

    They will discuss:

    >>What lessons were learned about navigating the mid-career search for a new role in a new organization? 

    >>What resources or training made the most difference? 

    >>What mistakes did they have to correct before they could land the job they really wanted?

    >>What was the biggest challenge they each had to overcome?

    About the speakers

    The panelists are graduates of the 40Plus Job Search Training Program.

    Mika Yamashita does performance measurement support with the Washington Area Community Investment Fund.




    Ken Schoppmann is executive director at the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities and is a Certified Association Executive. He's also a board member of 40Plus.



    CPA John Wilhelm Jr. is field agent for Knights of Columbus Insurance -- and the volunteer Executive Director of 40Plus.

    Training Class 2019.05

    New Class Starts September 5, 2019

    The core of the 40Plus commitment to improve your job search is an intensive, four-week training course. Learn how to manage your search and maximize the results.

    Our course leverages the most effective tools and tips from commercial executive search and placement services with the unique power of peer group dynamics to help you develop a solid foundation and an effective plan for your job search.

    Meeting in small groups with facilitators, learn every task of job and career change hands-on:

    • Learn the secret of building resumes from power-packed “Success Bites”
    • Write and critique cover letters tailored to real jobs
    • Discover your interviewing style through taped mock interviews, and refine your technique in a supportive atmosphere
    • Develop a brief self-profile that will make others want to help you
    • Increase your networking skills and confidence
    • Learn how to plan, organize and succeed in your job search
    • Learn how to use social media like LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook for your job search and to build your brand.

     

    The course schedule is as follows:

    • A required Pre-Class Assessment consisting of mock interview sessions will be held on Thursday, September 5, 2019, at 6:00 pm at the 40Plus office.  This helps the participants and facilitators understand areas to focus on throughout the course.
    • The classes meet over four weeks on:
      • Monday and Wednesday evenings (6:30-9:30 pm) and
        Saturday mornings (9:00 am - 1:00 pm).
      • A special social media session will be held one evening (6:30 - 9:30 pm) on a date to be determined with the class.
    • A required Post-Class Assessment consisting of mock interview sessions will be held on Thursday, October 10 at 6:00 pm at the 40Plus office.  This provides practice opportunities for newly acquired skills, and measures overall improvement in career transition skills.

      Please note: The Pre- and Post- Class Assessments not only provide valuable practice with mock interview and networking sessions, but they as well help participants and facilitators understand which areas they should focus on to improve.  Attendance to these is a requirement.

     Professional Reinvention Insights from the Pages of Leader to Leader, with author Bruce Rosenstein


    Today’s organizational professionals must become change leaders, within their own lives and those of their organizations. We often hear of the need to reinvent ourselves, but how is this really accomplished.

    In this session, Bruce Rosenstein, Managing Editor of the award-winning journal Leader to Leader, and author of Create Your Future the Peter Drucker Way, and Living in More Than One World: How Peter Drucker's Wisdom Can Inspire and Transform Your Life will guide us to planning and executing our own reinventions via the ideas and experiences of Leader to Leader authors such as Whitney Johnson, Daniel Goleman, Herminia Ibarra, Bob Buford, and Mo-Yee Lam.

    We will explore how to apply lessons such as Johnson’s concept of self-disruption; Goleman’s focus on a longer future with a wider professional lens; Ibarra’s “outsight” principal; Buford’s adaptation of five reflection questions of Peter Drucker; and Lam’s transformation from a sedentary lifestyle into an ultra-marathon athlete. Each example provides a key to how we can reinvent our own lives, inside and outside the workplace.
