Carol A. Ventresca, PhD, Executive Director at Employment for Seniors

Mature adults find job seeking to be a daunting task. Let’s discuss the strategies which can lead you through a successful job search. Understand the “myths and misassumptions” which impede a job search. Learn to identify transferable skills and their value in a job search. Employers are looking for experienced, qualified, and reliable candidates – that is you!

12:00 p.m.

Chris Borja, Recruiter/Trainer/Legal Services & Identity Theft Specialist at LegalShield

Wait no more...Network into to Your Dream Job, NOW!

Everyone knows the importance of networking, but most job-seekers never learned how to network and get results. This leaves them stuck in the waiting game, feeling hopeless, and frustrated.

Chris’ activity-based lessons have helped job-seekers transform their mindset, activity, and results!

Come ready to have some fun while learning new skills!

1:00 p.m.

James Bishop, Financial Advisor at Morgan Stanley

LinkedIn – Your Online Networking Resource

LinkedIn is the one of the most important networking tools for professionals and it is much more than your online resume. This class is designed for people wanting more from LinkedIn but if you are brand new to LinkedIn, come anyway. We will discuss your profile, your picture (yes you need one), engaging with others. LinkedIn is not the reason you will get a job but recruiters probably will look up your profile and if what they see doesn’t help demonstrate you are part of the professional world, that may be a concern.

More than Fast Food and Fries – Why consider Franchise Ownership?

Everyone has a dream of owning their own business and enjoying all that life has to offer. More time for yourself, more time for the family, more time to travel. Franchises provide the playbook for you to execute your business ownership dreams. And statistics have shown that franchise businesses succeed at a considerably higher rate than do start-up businesses. Don’t live under the false impression that franchising is just fast food, retail and it costs a million dollars to get into the game.

Citywide Training & Development (CTD) will provide workshops throughout the day, as well.
