    ABOUT THE panelists

    Ilene Rein is on a mission to get people hired and in record time! Ilene is a Job Search Strategist
    and Founder of the Foolproof, Job-Getting, Career-Building System Pounding Pavement 101.
    She teaches job seekers exactly how to market themselves with laser precision to employers using inside secrets from the view of the recruiter, exponentially increasing their chances of getting noticed and hired rapidly!

    Why does Ilene's job search program work so well for job seekers? She has created a strategic roadmap for job seekers, so they do not have to waste time figuring out how to find a job or to waste time making mistakes. Ilene explains the view of the recruiter, and exactly what you need to focus on to succeed in your job search to land your perfect job. Pounding Pavement 101 is perfect for seasoned professionals looking for their next career opportunity, college graduates/students starting their careers and even high school students applying to college or looking for their first jobs.

    Cicely Simpson is a keynote speaker, best-selling author of the book: Pull Up Your Chair: 5 Strategies to Change the Trajectory of Your Career, and the Founder and CEO of Summit Public Affairs in Washington, DC.  Cicely is changing the way people understand their roles in their own careers. For more than 25 years, Cicely has made her mark on the leadership team in every position she has held. Today, she shows everyone -- from CEOs to students -- how they can carve out a permanent space at the table, no matter what direction their career takes.
     Her background in politics and business brings real-world experience to audiences across the country; pulling back the curtain on how the world works on the Hill and in Fortune 500 companies. Beyond showing them what this new brand of leadership looks like, Cicely is pushing people past their comfort zones in order to inspire real change. Cicely shows audiences how to find their edge and keep it.

    Chris Prouty helps experts and entrepreneurs turn their socials and websites into client-getting rocketships by helping them understand the best way to convince someone that you can help them is to give them a transformation before the first conversation. But how? The first thing Chris does is to completely forget about any kind of “algorithm,” focusing instead on three core elements: finding a group of people who profoundly inspire you, discovering what you can do for them that deeply excites you, and educating them in a way that reveals you as the sole source for the solutions they seek.

    This process has worked remarkably well for the thousands of people he has served over 21 years. Chris can also help you design quick-win strategies and techniques that you can use in your marketing yourself immediately, and for free.

    The 40Plus Monday Speaker Series is sponsored by the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA). FCEDA's Talent Initiative Program provides great resources to connect our 40Plus members to hiring companies, agencies and non-profits across Northern Virginia through
