Training Class 2019.04

New Class Starts July 11, 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, July 11, 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, August 15 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: August 15 , 2019
