Empowering Experienced Professionals for Successful Career Transitions

Statement of Support: 

As an organization that empowers experienced professionals, managers, and executives for successful career transitions, 40Plus of Greater Washington serves professionals of all races and ethnicities. We stand firm in our support of all people who have been affected by the horrendous racist and violent acts in our country.

We condemn the police brutality that led to the tragic and needless death of George Floyd, along with others before him such as Breonna Taylor, Philando Castile and Eric Garner. We also condemn the violence, bigotry and systemic racism that has occurred during the past 400 years, particularly against black men and women in our nation. Furthermore, we stand firmly against discrimination of any kind including age discrimination, which frustrates many of our members during their search for new employment.

We offer our condolences to the family of George Floyd, his friends and loved ones. As a way to honor his memory, we stand ready to work with other agencies and community-based organizations, along with the community at large, to end injustice in all its forms against the oppressed and all persons of color.

Career Transition Skills Training  Course

Jump-start your job search...

With the 40Plus of Greater Washington Career Transition Skills Training Course

Our proven system of hands-on training and peer-to-peer support has helped thousands of people land new jobs and relaunch their careers. And unlike job placement and resume-writing services, you’ll have the major benefit of support from a community for as long as you need it. 40Plus is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization founded in 1953.

The core of the 40Plus program is a training course focused on up-to-date  job search skills -- four weeks of classes (a total of 43 hours) on how to sell yourself to employers by mastering:

  • TMAYs, or Tell Me About Yourself. Quick and effective talks about your skills and accomplishments and how to customize them for specific situations.
  • Success Bites. Develop short stories that emphasize results and become the building blocks of effective resumes and responses to interview questions
  • Resumes and Cover Letters. Make them sharp, focused and targeted to the specific job opening using the 40Plus system.
  • Interviewing. You’ll be video-recorded doing TMAYs and realistic interviews that are watched and constructively critiqued in class.
  • Networking. Learn the latest about social networking, filling your schedule with networking opportunities, and getting valuable informational interviews.

Classes are small -- five to seven people -- and meet two or three nights a week and on Saturdays. Experienced facilitators, who have taken the course themselves, lead each class.  

For more information, please join us for an orientation session after one of our free weekly Monday morning meetings
