Monday Morning Speakers 2019

Monday Speakers meetings are open to the public and free of charge. You are cordially invited to attend.

Each meeting features a speaker who covers topics of interest to those who are involved in or contemplating a job search or career change. The meeting begins with a networking session at 9:45 AM. We ask everyone to be seated by 9:55 AM so that the speaker can start promptly at 10:00 AM.

No reservations are needed. Come network with 40Plus members, other guests, and the speaker. The meeting is also an opportunity for anyone who is considering joining 40Plus to see and experience our organization.

Many of us continue our networking conversations over lunch at one of the nearby restaurants. Plan to join us.

    Volunteer Your Way to the Job You Want

    -- with 40Plus Experts

    Special Event in our NEW LOCATION: 1325 G ST NW

    Veteran hiring manager and career coach Tom Goodwin leads a 40Plus panel on a subject that's often overlooked.

    How to find a volunteer role that will:
    >>Add skills and experience to your resume
    >>Strengthen your contact network
    >>Freshen your work history
    >>Bring new achievements and references
    >>Energize you to go after the job you really want!

    During the anxious heat of the job hunt, you may overlook volunteering in an unpaid position. But the time invested can reap large rewards -- both professionally and in terms of your own life satisfaction. Especially for people in a mid-career transition, volunteering can be an important part of shifting onto a new, more satisfying professional track.

    About the speakers

    A former recruiter and human resources professional, Tom Goodwin is a 35-year veteran of employment-related positions, where he was responsible for hiring or representing accomplished professionals. He's currently a volunteer board member of 40Plus of Washington and a member of its Operations Council.

    40Plus Executive Director John Wilhelm Jr., CPA, is a 2016 graduate of the 40Plus Career Transition Skills Training Class and has been a 40 Plus facilitator for the past 3 years. Outside of his volunteer job of leading 40Plus, he's a Field Agent at Knights of Columbus Insurance -- following his own successful career transition.

    Ron Moore is director of operations at 40Plus, where he has volunteered since November of 2018. A former software development project manager, he is shifting career gears by launching his own business services company.

    Elevate Your Resume and Get Interviews You Want

    with Marcelle Yeager


    On average, every corporate job opening attracts 100-250 resumes. Four to six people will be called for an interview. Only one will be offered the job.

    Are you getting the interviews you want?

    This workshop will cover three tricks that will land your resume in the interview pile and save you time so you won’t be completely rewriting your resume for each application. Learn how to:

    ● create a master resume
    ● write detailed bullets that describe end goal
    ● dissect job requirements to incorporate keywords.

    NOTE: Please bring your resume to this session because we will go through practical exercises to help you improve it.
