Jobs4.0 and Dartmouth's Tuck School of Business Form Alliance, much more....

I hope everyone enjoyed the last few weeks of summer - welcome back!

HR managers are all back at their desks today, and September is the second busiest hiring month of the year (January is the busiest). So let's get going!

Here's just a quick update on a few things you should know about:

1. We've been very busy in August, talking to the employers who use Jobs4.0 and who recognize the value of hiring people over 40. Our renewal rate among employers is phenomenally high - the employers on our site believe in us and want to hire experienced candidates. And they are hiring Jobs4.0 applicants!

2. Check out our postings - among the hundreds of jobs are excellent opportunities at Vanguard (NC, AZ, Pa), New York Life Insurance (New York), Alexion Pharmaceuticals (all over the US), Moody's Investor Service (NY), MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston), Macy's South (Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Charlotte and more), Lifespan hospitals (Rhode Island and MA), and many many more.

3. Jobs4.0's Exclusive Alliance with Dartmouth's Tuck School of Business - We're very pleased to announce that Dartmouth's Tuck School of Business has contacted us about reaching out to Jobs4.0 users. For anyone interested in polishing up their credentials, this could be a great opportunity.
The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth has developed a special program for business professionals who want to return to corporate careers. It’s designed to help you reenter the fast-changing world of business with refreshed leadership skills and up-to-the-minute know how that top employers demand.
You’ll explore career options as you polish your job-search skills. And you’ll have opportunities to tap into Tuck’s business network to reach potential employers as well as peers who share similar backgrounds and work/life challenges.
Join other business professionals this autumn in New York City and at Dartmouth College in Hanover , New Hampshire , for intensive, high-impact learning experiences led by Tuck’s renowned faculty. Back in Business classmates will have MBAs or MBA-equivalent experience in high-potential careers.
Between the strong community built through the program and the classroom and career sessions, one program graduate concluded “the true gift of Back in Business is that I have choices, that doors are open, and that I feel empowered and ready to make things happen.”

Please contact us at to schedule an introductory call to discuss the program, or to speak directly with a program graduate. You may also visit for additional information and the application for admission.

4. Last month, we asked you if you thought you were a better worker now than you were before you turned 40, and why. We received an enormous number of responses. The survey responses were 96% supporting the fact that you thought you were a better worker now than when you were in your 20s and 30s. While that result is perhaps not surprising, the reasons many of you provided, and the emphatic nature of your answers, might be eye -opening for many HR managers. More on this in future newsletters, stay tuned.

5. We get emails all the time from job seekers who want to post their resume on our site. We maintain resumes in a private, not public, database. If you haven't done so already, please email it to and we'll maintain it in our private database, which we make available to select employers. Perhaps you've heard about the security breach on some other major job posting boards - it's a major problem for them (and the poor people who put their personal resumes on a public site!). Our private database is more work for us, but it's much much safer for you, and besides your current employer can't see that you are posting your resume when you send it to us!

6. Media update
In case you missed it, Jobs4.0 continues to receive extremely favorable reviews in all the major media, including this week AARP - The Magazine (Sept/Oct issue), and Newsday (the newspaper of Long Island, NY). (newsday,0,2007247.story .

Again, welcome back. Good luck, and as always, please contact us with any comments or questions.

ps. Please remember to recommend us to your friends and colleagues. thanks.
