At SecondActWomen, we believe that age is your superpower…on the job and in real life. But, even superpowers get put to the test. We know that searching for a job or switching careers at 40 & 50+ can be challenging, exhausting and downright frustrating, especially when workplace realities like ageism work against us.
But, we have good news though! There are things you can do to push back on ageist beliefs, market your experience, build intergenerational bridges, and land the job.

“I’ve got two big words to describe the SAW Career Boot Camp – LIFE CHANGER! This group, led by Barbara and Lupe – helped me to uncover confidence that had become buried in self-doubt during the pandemic. (During which I turned 50!)
Since attending the Career Camp Workshop in 2021, my career has skyrocketed! During the full-day workshop, I was introduced to passionate leaders from their vast community of professionals, as well as great new friends. Joy, success & confidence have returned in abundance.”
“Making the commitment to join Second Act Women and attend Career Camp to upskill my job-hunting efforts was a valuable investment. The sessions empowered me to focus my time, multiply my efforts, and quickly upskill in today’s technology-driven career search market. Within 60 days I had multiple written offers, I was invited to present to a master’s-level class on my unconventional job search tactics, and I ultimately accepted an offer with a 40% salary increase and generous signing bonus.”
“I am happy that I attended the Career Camp. The session topics were relevant, informative and encouraging.
Also, to be surrounded by amazing women and feel their strength was amazing. Not only was it empowering, the new sisterhood you come away with is indescribable.”
