7 Smart Strategies for 50+ Jobseekers is a 3-hour power session that will introduce 45-50+ job seekers to the essential 21st-century job search strategies for people who are looking for a new job mid-life.
The program was developed by AARP Foundation with the combined advice from job search experts, employers, and successful 50+ former job seekers to help current un(der)employed workers organize a job hunt strategy that makes the most of their talents and abilities. Workshop participants leave with tips, advice, and worksheets you can use to take your job search to the next level.
After the workshop, participants are offered the opportunity to work individually with a job coach or job counselor.
Workshop Leaders, Coordinators, and Job Coaches/Counselors will complete an online self-paced training. Workshop leaders will work in pairs to teach the curriculum at our facility as well as local libraries and community centers. Coordinators will collaborate with leaders to set up dates and sites, recruit participants and coaches. Job Coaches/Counselors will support participants to complete each of the strategies for 5-7 sessions post-workshop.

You might know the building as your polling place or as your Girl Scout cookie- sorting place. Perhaps you are already a participant in one of the many organizations that use the space, such as the Baltimore Musicales or Children’s Village.
The Corner Community Center (CCC) wants to enhance and expand the use of this building and grounds at 5802 Roland Avenue. in order to enrich your opportunities to network with your neighbors, to learn about environmental changes you can make to your homes and yards to lessen run-off to the Chesapeake Bay, to offer speakers and programs that deal with concerns you have about our city, and to offer spaces for meetings or programs that you want to offer to the neighborhood - just to get started with the possibilities!
The Baltimore Job Hunters Support Group (BJHSG) is one of the 24 groups that meets at CCC. BJHSG, a volunteer-led group that provides emotional and spiritual support to the unemployed, is expanding to include a formal program of coaching, advocacy, counseling, mutual mentoring, volunteering,and connection to resources, for all persons seeking employment search assistance, with emphasis on long-term unemployed workers (defined as those who have been seeking employment for 6 months or more without success) affected by the Great Recession and those who are age 45-50+ workers.
