Webinar: How to Work Your Way Out of the She-cession (With Your Secret Midlife Edge)


Don’t leave it to others to decide whether you’re too old, why you took a break or were let go, whether you’re up on the latest tech -- or anything else, for that matter. Take control of your story!

Wed, Apr 7, 2021 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT

The numbers tell it all. With over 2 million women voluntarily having left the workforce for child or elder care responsibilities, and 5 million out of the workforce overall, it might feel like jobs are hard to come by right now. And on top of that, maybe your confidence is low because of how you think you’re perceived as a candidate.

How many times have you put off changes you want to make in your career because of your age? Time and again we hear women say, “They’ll think I’m too old for _______” (fill in the blank for whatever your dream career is).

Control how you position yourself as a professional who has experience and value to contribute, regardless of career gaps and no matter your age or stage.

Join us for this webinar with Judy Schoenberg and Linda Lautenberg to learn 3 must-have tools to turn all the experience you’ve gained by midlife into a definitive edge to propel your career transition.

What will you learn?

  • How owning your story is key to a compelling pitch
  • Why you need a personal brand in midlife (we’re all selling something!)
  • Why your personal “board of advisors” = your secret weapon in career transition
