Overcoming Age Barriers in Your Job Search

During these difficult economic times, age related issues can be a factor during a job search and the interview process. For information on how best to handle such issues, come to Bernardsville Public Library on Thursday, June 2 at 10:30 am for tips and pointers from Mona Witman, a Career Counselor with The Women’s Center at the County College of Morris.

Ms. Witman will teach participants how to deal with actual and perceived age-related issues such as outdated technical skills, health concerns, and being "over-qualified." She will also tell how to answer tough interview questions in this vein. Being prepared and having a positive attitude will help bridge the generation gap and lead to success!

Ms. Witman has been giving career and job search advice for over 30 years, working with college students, displaced homemakers and the general community. She received her master’s degree from Columbia Teachers College, New York and was formerly the director of the Roxbury Career Counseling Center in Succasunna. She has lectured extensively throughout New Jersey on career issues.

There is no charge to attend the program, but advance sign-up is requested. Register online at and follow the link under Adult Programs, or call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up.
