Did you know that 85% of all jobs are found through networking?

If you are looking to network with fellow job seekers for a new job or career direction, attend the 50+ Job Seekers Networking Group! Funded by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs, managed by Massachusetts Councils on Aging, and supported by AARP, the 50+ Job Seekers Networking Group is designed to support and assist people in the 50+ demographic who are looking for job search guidance, support materials and strategies for a new career direction or an encore career.

Each biweekly meeting is facilitated by an Experienced Career Coach and features a new topic! Meetings include a presentation and hands-on workshop on topics relevant to career transition, job search, guest speakers, access to hiring managers, ample opportunity to network, and 1-1 coaching guidance. Participating on a regular basis will give job seekers the many tools and strategies needed for a successful job search.
