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: James  (Jim) E. Thomas III

"What It Takes to Compete for That Next Job" with JAMES (Jim) E. Thomas III

Having  the skills, experience and a good resume are no guarantee that you will be offered a job. The competition is fierce and the hiring managers have a lot of choices. What will distinguish you from the competition and place you in the hiring managers favor?

Many are still not applying the "secret sauce effectively. Others have no clue what factors impress the hiring manager. This dynamic and motivational session will be interactive and provide a small portion of the planned group career coaching sessions starting in September.

This will be a "don't miss" session if you want to get your job search on track.
