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.

Making the Most of Informational Interviews with BARBARA MITCHELL

Conversation with Barbara mitchell 

One of the best ways to gather data to help you focus your job search is to do informational interviews with people who either already are doing the kind of work you're searching for or who have expertise in your field of interest. While these interviews don't usually lead to job offers, they provide you with valuable information to use as you continue your search.

The people you'll want to interview with are typically busy professionals so you must carefully structure your "ask" and keep to an agreed to time frame.  This session will focus on:


  • Setting up informational interviews
  • Preparing for informational interviews
  • Conducting an informational interview
  • Following up after an informational interview
