Armed with the tools and knowledge to reenter the workforce, we can help these residents get back to work.”
The trained professionals of the JJC Plus 50 Workforce Center will provide resume writing assistance, interview techniques and job search strategies to help older workers compete in today’s job market. Attendees will learn how to make a strong, positive impression with prospective employers, giving them the best chance for success.
