Hopkinton Public Library and the Massachusetts Library Collaborative are hosting a series of virtual networking sessions for job seekers over 50 years old. These bi-weekly skill-building sessions are designed for people looking for a new job, a new direction for their career, or a Second Act in their career.

Attendance at each session is not necessary, but it is highly recommended. Job seekers can join at any time.

The libraries have designed a meeting schedule to help job seekers build their search toolkit. Meetings will be offered on Wednesday mornings at 9:00 AM and Wednesday evenings at 6:00 PM. The Zoom room will open 30 minutes early to allow for informal networking and sharing resources.
