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 Career Choices at Mid-Life with CEO of Washington Career Services SUSANNE MAURER


Using Career Magellan to Begin Your Career Journey, Career Magellan is a career development workbook that can help you, the career seeker, through introspective exercises and questions.

The focus of Career Magellan is on self-awareness, the initial but usually forgotten first step in a career or job search.

The comprehensive, self-directed approach described in this workbook can help you enhance self-awareness, increase personal power, set and achieve career and life goals, change the way you think and feel about your career and life path, and how to live your life to the fullest.

Career Magellan is a career/life assessment tool that works well with people who are:

* Embarking on another area of their career.

* Thinking about entering or leaving their current career (transitions from school, military, organizations).

* Entering retirement.

We will discuss:

* How Career Magellan came about
* What is Career Magellan
* How this workbook might help you
* The importance of identifying your passions, talents, and values (exercise)­­
