The 50 + Job Seekers Program

The Malden Public Library is continuing to offer the 50+ Job Seekers Program.  This is a free service and anyone 55 years or older is welcome to join any or all the sessions. All classes are held on Zoom.   Anyone interested who doesn’t have a computer or isn’t familiar with Zoom is welcome to come to the library and borrow a Chromebook during the sessions.  Library staff will make sure anyone interested in participating can do so.

The morning sessions are from 9:30-11:30am, and meet the 1st & 3rd Wednesdays.  The evening sessions are from 6-8pm and meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays. This program will run from February-March 2024.

Session topics include: self-assessment and transferable skills, creating your “career story” pitch, LinkedIn profiles, resumes, networking and creating a marketing plan.  The Library is excited to continue offering this program and encourages anyone interested to attend.   To register, visit: https://bit.ly/202450PlusJobs
