The Career Gateway!

Despite COVID-19, JCA is here to help you and those you love find senior services in Greater DC. 

Are you over age 50 and frustrated by your job search? JCA’s Career Gateway Program can help you hone your resume, polish your networking and interviewing skills, use Internet job search resources more effectively, and turn your age and experience to your advantage. Each session of the Career Gateway features 30 hours of small-group classroom instruction over five days, comprehensive take-home materials, practical exercises, and a long-term mentor – all for only $75! Sessions run from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.


**Due to health concerns relating to the COVID-19 outbreak and out of concern for the health of our participants and volunteers, our June session will be an interactive, online experience. Same curriculum, class facilitator, presenters and volunteers addressing all of the important job-seeking skills as in our in-class programming AND all from the comfort and safety of your own home! Don’t be intimidated by online instruction! We’ll work through this together!
