Bergen Employment Network Meeting

by Bergen County Workforce Development Board


Guest Presentation (January 22, 2019)

Deborah DelBove, Bergen County One-Stop Career Center

Employers spend a lot of time and money recruiting candidates only to find that many hires are not reliable, dependable, loyal, punctual, or dedicated. Businesses can find many of these qualities in mature workers while benefiting from significant cost savings. Forget the older worker stigmas, mature workers are experienced, focused, knowledgeable, and [well…] mature.

Overcoming Challenges Faced by the Mature Worker is a discussion on the issues faced by the mature worker and how to help your clients update their resume and interviewing skills, overcome obstacles, real or imagined, and how to empower job seekers to be the best candidate for the job.

The next meeting will be on February 26 -- topic TBA.

Does your WORK FOCUS on the EMPLOYMENT OBJECTIVES of JOB SEEKERS and EMPLOYERS? Then we hope you will join us!
