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.

Got Branding?

Make Your Candidacy POP!

with Shira Harrington


In This Talk We Will Discuss:

Starbucks. Google. Nike. You can envision their logos in your head, right? These recognizable brands all promise an experience based on a unique value proposition (UVP.)

They have determined what sets them apart and they promote that brand…consistently. As a job seeker, what’s your personal brand?

In sea of competition, you need to clearly broadcast your value to the right audiences.

Knowing WHO you want to serve, HOW you want to serve and even WHY you want to serve, can help you focus a targeted message that compels your target employer to say, “YOU are who we need to hire!n!"
