    Training Class 2018

    New Class Starts MAY 17, 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 Thursday, May 17, 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, June 21st 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.

    Class ends: June 21, 2018

    Each participant must successfully complete the membership application process.

    Monday Speaker Series:  Karen Sadowski


    The First Five Minutes Can Make or Break the Interview

        

    Conversation with
    KAREN SADOWSKI

           


     

    Karen will present how The First Five Minutes Can Make or Break the Interview.   It is a culmination of the time and effort one has put into developing their presence, communication and interviewing skills, self-confidence, self-awareness, emotional intelligence and accomplishments. People form impressions and make judgments quickly, whether on the phone, in a video conference or in a meeting face-to-face.

    There are specific activities that you need to be aware of, so that you will make the best impression and position yourself for success.   Join us to find out how the “unknowing”, “blind spots” and stories we tell ourselves eliminate you from moving forward in the interview process.  Unwittingly, it is at times a form of self-sabotage.

      
    ABOUT THE SPEAKER:


    Karen Sadowski is an executive search consultant and President of KMS Associates which provides talent acquisition for law firms, associations and companies locally as well as nationally.  With over 25 years of recruiting, branding, marketing and interviewing, Karen has seen what works, what doesn’t and why.  Prior to her entrepreneurial role in the search service and career counseling industry, Karen has earned experience in senior management.
