50+ Job Seekers Networking Group
January - June 2023 | First & Third Wednesdays, 9:30 - 11:30 AM on Zoom
If you are unemployed and actively looking, underemployed, seeking a new career direction, re-entering the job market after a long employment gap, or recently retired and looking for your "Encore Career", this networking group program is perfect for you! Remember, 85% of jobs are found through networking!
Join us in a professional forum for networking with peers in a safe and comfortable environment conducive to developing new relationships and developing skills and strategies to help in your career transition. Each meeting features a new topic. Meetings include a presentation and hands-on workshop on topics relevant to career transition, guest speakers, access to hiring managers, small group breakout rooms to network, and 1-on-1 coaching guidance. Participating on a regular basis will give job seekers the many tools and strategies needed for a successful job search.
In addition to our in-person programs, we also provide virtual learning opportunities on Zoom! Check our events calendar and look for the (Virtual) tag at the beginning of program names.
