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:  Open Meeting for Members and Visitors

  Special Monday Program:  

      Tell Me About Yourself.

So, "Tell Me About Yourself" ....  

Learn this essential skill

What to Expect in this Presentation:

"Tell me about yourself" can one of the most frequently asked questions and can set the tone of a job interview, the elevator introduction, the networking event and many other professional engagements.  

It's that persons' first impression of you.

At it's core, when they ask you "Tell me about yourself" you need to express: Who You Are; What do you do; Why are you so special.

Tom Goodwin, a human resource professional, will go well beyond that core and share the deliverables that will make your "Tell Me About Yourself" answer set the tone that will have the HR departments calling you back.

"to get you to explain what you want someone else to know about you." Section 6.2


and "to describe what you want the other person to know about you and to begin a useful conversation with the other person." Section 6.2


When I teach TMAY, I recommend that it be a concise description of marketable skills expressed in a priority that connects with the job for which you are interviewing. Who you are and the skills you offer.  


I hope that helps, if you have time look at Section 6 of our manual. Dave
