Compete and Succeed at Any Age

This workshop will give you tools to:
- Develop marketing materials that reflect your fit for the job not your years of experience
- Conduct company research so you can demonstrate that you are a good fit for the employer
- Find ways to update your work skills and keep them updated while you are job searching

Interviewing: Be a STAR at Your Next Interview
Preparing for the interview is critical and will allow you to successfully sell yourself to the employer. Included in this workshop are frameworks for answering difficult questions, strategies for answering important unspoken questions, and telling stories that will help the interviewer remember you long after the interview is over.
