Who Are You? Whatcha Got? - A Job Seeker Workshop


During this 3 hour workshop, we'll be focusing on tools you can use to determine what makes you stand out to an employer. And, we'll help you develop action plans to put that knowledge into practice to strengthen and recharge your job search.


Session 1:

StrengthsFinder - What is this and how can it help me?

Be brave, go on a journey of self-awareness that will help you Discover What Makes You Stand Out. Reinvigorate your senses so you really know what you get excited about… what you’re good at. These things matter and understanding them can help you use your Strengths in the Job Search.

Jackie Timm: Head of Business Ops., Thomson Reuters; Certified Strengths Coach




Session 2:

Have You Determined Your Strengths, Weaknesses, Core Values?

Have you ever done a personal SWOT Analysis? If not, how can you sell yourself to that next employer? Learn about tools to help in that discovery process, how to identify facets of your personal info to help you make better career choices and discover internet resources to help you make better career plans.

Nancy Cechvala LPC, GCDF: Employment and Training Career Counselor,

Session 3:

Whatcha Got? Put Into Practice What You Learned

Participate in small group facilitated discussions about what you learned in the sessions above and develop action plans and steps to put these things into practice to recharge your job search. Engage in interactive discussions to help you use these tools to strengthen your value statement.

Discussions led by 40PLUS Board Members and Group Leaders




OK....now that you're intersted, here are the key things you need to do:

1) Register for this workshop here.

2) Share info about this workshop with others you know who are looking (or secretly looking) for a new position. What happens here stays here.

3) Dress for success and Make a good impression. Don't forget that the first impressions are forever. So that means, no jeans (unless you would wear jeans at your job). There will be people who are attending this workshop that ARE employed as recruiters and hiring managers. **Oh, and it tends to be chilly at the Marcy Center, so dress in layers.

4) Bring paper, pen, and your personal business cards. You will be meeting others who may be helpful with your job search.
