Job series: Over 40 and Looking for Work

Looking for work at any age can be challenging. Job seekers over 40 need 21st century strategies to showcase their expertise and education without appearing dated. A career counselor from the Connecticut Department of Labor will help you learn how to make your experience work for you. This program will meet on Monday, October 19 at 10 a.m. in the Rotary Room at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road. Registration is requested.

Other Jobs series programs this fall include: “LinkedIn for Professionals and Job Seekers”, November 19; “Critiquing LinkedIn Profiles” (this is a one-on-one registration event), November 23; “Marketing Yourself: Branding”, December 3 and “Advanced Resume Techniques”, December 14.

These presentations are part of the Library’s award-winning Jobs series, now in its sixth year. The talks are supplemented by a LinkedIn networking group, one-on-one career counseling sessions, Job Search Boot Camp, podcast recordings of over 100 past presentations (www.fairfieldpubliclibrary.org), and an updated collection of job-hunting books. Since January of 2012, 150 people who have attended Jobs series programs have reported that they have found employment.

All programs at the Fairfield Public Library are free. For more information about this and other programs, visit us online at: www.fairfieldpubliclibrary.org or call 203-256-3160.
