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.

Monday Morning Speaker Presentation: 
How to Create a Powerful Online Brand!

with Laura M. Labovich

Social Media for Job Seekers!

We've had an abundance of requests for this session and are excited to deliver! In fact, Laura just delivered this very same presentation as the keynote speaker for Georgetown University's MBA Professional Development Series, to rave reviews. Get your questions answered here!

What you will learn at the session:

- Why it's important to be "google-able" and how to raise your rank when you're not.

- How social media can give you access to the "hidden job market."

- What red flags you need to be aware of on Facebook, LinkedIn and twitter (especially important for those of you who fiercely guard your privacy!)

- Q & A!  (Yep, ask me any question about social media and I'll be happy to answer it).

About The Speaker

Laura M. Labovich:

With her nationally recognized expertise as a job search makeover coach, award-winning résumé writer, social media enthusiast, and master networker, coupled with a decade of HR and recruiting experience at Fortune 500 companies such as Disney and America Online, Laura is often affectionately called ‘a job seeker’s best friend.”

As President of The Career Strategy Group, Laura’s contagious enthusiasm and powerful methodology make the perfect recipe for getting job seekers unstuck in their job search. Equal parts kick-butt trainer and nurturing cheerleader, Laura empowers job seekers to develop proactive, targeted job search marketing plans that increase momentum and achieve breakthrough results.

Laura is known for saying that she was ‘born and raised professionally at Disney’ and has been told that she truly has pixie dust in her blood. After receiving her first promotion out of the polyester, she recruited nationwide for the highly competitive Walt Disney World College Program, led the recreation recruiting and staffing efforts for Disney's Typhoon Lagoon and Disney's Blizzard Beach water parks, and proudly served on the inaugural recruitment team for Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. At America Online, she developed and launched AOL's college internship program, hiring more than 100 MBA interns in its first year, and coached hundreds of employees--from entry-level to executive--on how to fit in, stand out, and move up in the company and in their careers.

Laura’s easy-to-implement approach has garnered attention from such national news media as The Washington Post, U.S. News & World Report, USA Today, Chicago Tribune,, to name a few. And, as a former amateur nightclub singer in her home town of Farmington Hills, Michigan, she certainly knows how to tackle, inspire, and entertain a tough crowd. Laura is also the co-author of the book 100 Conversations for Career Success: Learn to Tweet, Cold-Call and Network Your Way to a Dream Job (LearningExpress, 2012), a book about ‘what to say and how to say it’ in your job search.

But above all else, Laura believes in abundance, and she is 100% certain that there is more than enough pie to go around for everyone.
