The expo is divided into two day sessions. Day 1 will allow attendees to attend upbeat motivational workshops geared to the mature worker to assist in making them more marketable in this fierce job market. Workshops will rotate throughout the day. On Day 2 attendees will interact and interview with employers and can submit or applications onsite employers.
