Entering the job market later in life can be exhilarating – but it can also be intimidating.

You will:

  • Create an employment action plan

  • Develop competitive job search documents
  • Prepare for your next interview
  • Connect with employers
  • Enhance your computer skills

To find out if the program is right for you, consider the following:

  • Am I available to commit to 30 hours per week Monday-Friday for 8 weeks?
  • Do I have a job goal?
  • Am I committed to finding work?
  • Am I ready to start work right away?
  • Am I or will I be between the ages of 55 and 64 years of age during the program?

During each session participants receive 30 hours of instruction per week for 8 weeks (6 weeks instruction with hybrid learning and 2 weeks focused job search).
