    Training Class 2018.04

    New Class Starts November 1, 2018

    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 November 1, 2018, 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, December 13th 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.

    Monday Morning Speaker: Heather Sheridan  
     
     

    Developing a Professional Self-Marketing Plan, Grounded in Your Personal Passions  


       Conversation with HEATHER SHERIDAN  

    Has your career experience been filled with what you think you should be doing versus what you want to be doing?

    Do you feel that you are constantly drawn to the same kind of job descriptions, applying for the same opportunities over and over, none of which connect with that fire in your belly?

    Well now is the time to make a choice to move forward in your search in a different manner!

     

    A very wise mentor once shared “find something you are passionate about and if you can turn that into work, it will never feel like work.” This advice has lead me to so many valuable work experiences that have kept me engaged and striving to effect change in the world. Making a choice to direct your job search towards things that you are naturally passionate about may feel like a luxury reserved for others, but it is not. This is something we all must take the time to consider, so we can build careers grounded in things we are personally driven by and naturally gifted to do. Additionally, being personally mission-driven allows you to present more confidently in interviews.  

     

    Come to this workshop to figure out how to identify what personal and professional passions drive you and how to create a personally mission-driven self-marketing plan. We will also discuss ways to avoid burn out if you are in a position that allows you to work towards those professional passions and how to stay connected to why you entered the field.
