50+ Job Seekers Group: Free Career & Networking Program

February 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 weeks that begins at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until June 28, 2023

Free

The Massachusetts Library Collaborative’s 50+ Job Seekers Group meets on Wednesdays twice a month, from January to June.  There is a morning session 9:30 am to 11:30 am and an evening session from 6 pm to 8 pm via Zoom. (see schedule below) If you are unemployed and actively looking, underemployed, seeking a new career direction, re-entering the job market after a long employment gap, or recently retired and looking for your “Encore Career”, this networking group program is perfect for you! Remember, 85% of jobs are found through networking!

 
Join us in a professional forum for networking with peers in a safe and comfortable environment conducive to developing new relationships and developing skills and strategies to help in your career transition. Each meeting features a new topic. Meetings include a presentation and hands-on workshop on topics relevant to career transition, guest speakers, access to hiring managers, small group breakout rooms to network, and 1-on-1 coaching guidance. Participating on a regular basis will give job seekers the many tools and strategies needed for a successful job search.  You can sign up for all all sessions or attend individual sessions at your convenience.  There is overlap between the morning and evening sessions so if you miss a morning session you can catch the same information the next week in the evening. 
 
Each biweekly meeting is facilitated by Deborah Hope, MBA, PCIC, an experienced executive career coach. Deborah is a former Fortune 500 executive, investment banker and entrepreneur and transitioned to executive coaching over 12 years ago. She has coached with Harvard Business School Executive Education programs, the Mass. Conference for Women., and has been trained or certified in a variety of coaching models and assessment tools. Deborah has facilitated 50+ job seekers networking groups since 2016.
 
This group is sponsored by more than 60 Massachusetts public libraries. The program is free of charge.
