2016 – 10 40th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

Join 40Plus in Celebrating 40 Years of Milwaukee Job Seeker Support
For the past 40 years, 40Plus of SE WI has helped area job seekers navigate the process to successful employment. Then known as the Bill Needler Job Forum, 40Plus was started in 1976 by two local HR professionals who saw an unmet need for job seekers without outplacement help. 40Plus weekly speaker presentation meetings and smaller interactive support groups have educated job seekers, motivated them, connected them to employers and with each other forming a supportive community. Adapting to market shifts, employment process automation and economic hardships, 40Plus has adapted programming and made a difference in the lives of thousands in Milwaukee, helping them through these challenges. It continues today, and has been the inspiration of many similar local job seeker support groups.

Join our Master of Ceremonies – Joanne Williams, who also used 40Plus during her transition, to hear how this model creates success for your job search. Be inspired by graduate stories. Learn why organizations like this are key to a successful career transition. Network with those that have been successful in transitioning to new jobs. Meet HR staff, employers, recruiters and career professionals that have supported 40Plus and job seekers.
