Are you an older LGBT older adult struggling with lack of up-to-date computer skills, an absence from the job market, or a rusty resume?  If you need the skills to make it in a job market that can be stacked against older workers, SAGEWorks‘ Employment Boot Camp may work for you.

For the first time, SAGE Metro Detroit will host a SAGEWorks Employment Boot Camp starting on Monday, July 18, 2016 at Hannan House in Detroit. The Employment Boot Camp is a free two-week (July 18-29) intensive training program  that is designed to give participants job hunting skills and educate them on career options, with a focus on job seekers ages 40 or older.

Administered by Operation Able, the Employment Boot Camp includes education segments on topics such as the realities of today’s job market, resume and interview instruction, conducting a modern job search, social media and networking, stress, anger management, and more. 

Sounds like fun? 

Sign up now for the SAGEWorks Employment Boot Camp and start the application process. Applicants should be highly motivated in their search for employment and have basic computer skills and must commit to attend all training sessions. 

Due to capacity, only ten applicants will be selected to participate in the Employment Boot Camp, so register now because space is limited.  

Although the ideal candidates are LGBT older adults,  the SAGEWorks Employment Boot Camp is open to all who think they would benefit from the programs training sessions. And we hope that this includes you!

(Please, note: The online application form includes Employment Boot Camps in both Detroit and New York City. Please be sure to check the Detroit Boot Camp on the application.)
