MIT Study to Help Unemployed 40 -65 Years of Age — Looking for Volunteers

Sign up for the opportunity to receive free job search support made possible by MIT-based research and career coaches and counselors who have agreed to volunteer their time. As part of research focused on effective job search strategies and support, a number of experienced career coaches and counsellors have volunteered to provide for free the same job search support that often costs amounts not affordable to many unemployed job seekers.

Job seekers in the greater Boston area are encouraged to sign up if they fit the study’s focus on:
— workers who are unemployed at least 6 months,
— white-collar workers (broadly defined, to include anyone would might work in an office, from administrative assistants to executives, to engineers or managers), and
— workers between 40 – 65 years old

Please sign up even if you are not sure you “fit” the study’s focus. Please also note that while we seek to provide free support to as many job seekers as we can, due to the number of available career coaches and counselors not all job seekers who sign up will be able to receive support. Everyone who signs up will receive a response, and if they wish, will be on a list to receive preliminary findings as they become available on the most effective job search strategies.

The sign up process should take approximately 10 minutes . The sign up and the research will adhere to the highest standards of confidentiality.
