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.

Elevate Your Resume and Get Interviews You Want

with Marcelle Yeager

On average, every corporate job opening attracts 100-250 resumes. Four to six people will be called for an interview. Only one will be offered the job.

Are you getting the interviews you want?

This workshop will cover three tricks that will land your resume in the interview pile and save you time so you won’t be completely rewriting your resume for each application. Learn how to:

● create a master resume
● write detailed bullets that describe end goal
● dissect job requirements to incorporate keywords.

NOTE: Please bring your resume to this session because we will go through practical exercises to help you improve it.
