50+ Employment Expo

Hundreds of job seekers flocked to the free 50+ Employment Expo at the Sheraton Tysons on April 18. Participants met dozens of job recruiters and attended seminars on changing careers, online job searching, continuing education, job training, and job interviewing. Chief Meteorologist Doug Hill of ABC 7/WJLA-TV News was the key note speaker. The event was sponsored by the Jewish Council for the Aging of Greater Washington, Fairfax County and community partners.
