Participants worked with two training series around customer service and job readiness, utilizing over 1,000 online webinars. Training topics included leveraging, transferable skills, highlighting strengths in your resume, and interview preparation. This focused training, better positioned mature workers to compete in today’s job market and be viewed as qualified candidates. It was an integral part of the MaturityWorks program achieving more than 135% of its entered employment goal in the recent program year.  The program had an overwhelmingly positive response from mature workers as they demonstrated increased knowledge, enhanced confidence, improved proficiency with technology and enhanced motivation to return to the workforce.  Thank you, Near & Far Aid, for empowering senior workers!
