Age is one common concern of jobseekers who come to LA Fellows. "Will employers consider me a viable candidate for the job at my age? Will they rule me out as a candidate because they don't think I'll fit in?" One way to allay their concerns is to be proactive in thinking about your place in an age-diverse workplace and demonstrating that you understand this component and have the flexibility to adapt.
The city of Burbank's Team Business is sponsoring a FREE workshop, open to all, to give insight on the topic of multiple generations in the workplace and how different age groups fit into the corporate culture. The speaker will be one of our very own LA Fellows instructors, Jim Marteney.
The workshop takes place May 8th, the day before our first orientation for Cohort 10 of the LA Fellows, which begins in July. We invite you to check it out, then come to learn more about the LA Fellows and what other insights you can tap into to make you a stronger candidate in your job search. You can get the details for the orientation at www.lafellows.org/apply.

Only recently in modern society have four generations worked together side by side. And that’s not always easy. The Wall Street Journal notes, “The frictions may be aggravated by new technology and work patterns that mix workers of different ages in ever-changing teams.”
Dissecting the multi-generational workplace, popular speaker Jim Marteney returns to Burbank to explain why understanding age diversity may be as important as understanding cultural diversity.
“It’s important to realize that each generation has different attitudes, behaviors, expectations, and motivational buttons,” explains Jim, “and working with those differences may be key to a more productive company.”
Scheduled for Thursday, May 8 (10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.), he’ll showcase ways to make the workplace more “age friendly.”
As always, there is no charge to attend this workshop.To reserve your seat, contact Team Business at www.itsmyseat.com/teambusiness
