WEST ORANGE – If you are a Baby Boomer, then the fifth annual JVS Creative Maturity Expo is tailored for you. The expo is a program with the motto “Redefining Life’s Potential – Refinement not Retirement.” Join in the day’s activities on Sunday, Nov. 6, at the JCC MetroWest, 760 Northfield Avenue, West Orange, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
A wide array of seminars and demonstrations, encompassing financial planning, health & wellness, cooking, and relationship building are scheduled throughout the day. Baby Boomer Max Weinberg, the drummer for Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band, hails from the MetroWest area and is the keynote speaker. His topic, “The Beat Goes On!,” will focus on how to maintain success in a marketplace catering to youth. He is scheduled to speak at 1:15 p.m.
In response to the continuing high unemployment numbers, with many mature workers still seeking jobs, JVS will also offer a variety of seminars on job search strategies, including: “Maturity Works: Ace the Interview”; “Giving Back While Getting Back”; and “Social Networking 101.” Throughout the day JVS Career & Job Placement counselors will be available to answer questions and help individuals improve their interviewing and social networking skills.
