Webinar helps boomers seek work

Three experienced baby boomer employment counsellors have joined forces to offer work search assistance and guidance to Canadian boomers (50+) through a webinar.

The project, Golden Keys – Opening Workforce Doors for Canadian Boomers makes use of this latest technology as a way for boomers across the country to learn new skills, interact with others in their peer group and receive support, all from the comfort of their home computer.

Lowell Ann Fuglsang (career coach), Marilyn Henigman and Dawn Schell (career counsellors) have developed a four-part webinar series on job search techniques for the mature Canadian job seeker, focusing on the challenges this age group encounters when seeking employment, including the challenge of ageism.

The series offers work search ideas and techniques through live interaction with experienced counsellors as well as with the other participants.

The webinars run for 90 minutes beginning Nov. 7.
