About Dewey McGuirk

I have over 20 years’ experience in higher education. I, too, was laid off from my position several years ago and struggled to get employed again because of ageism. I also did not realize how much the job market and hiring practices had changed.

Today’s best practices for job hunting are quite different than before. Much of what you will see is already outdated. The wrong resume format will make YOU look old and outdated. The wrong font might make it harder for your resume to get past an applicant tracking system meaning your resume will not be seen by a human being. A poorly optimized LinkedIn profile will hurt your chances. If you are over 50, you to plan your job search to overcome ageism to get hired.

In this blog I will try to give you all the tools you need to get the most out of your job search. You will see tips and strategies for all the above and more. If you are unemployed, you might even be eligible for a government grant that can really help you get a better, higher-paying job.

Luckily, I got back to work after what seemed an eternity. I now specialize in helping veterans, unemployed (and under-employed) workers who may be eligible for a government grant that will pay for them to get trained, certified and help them get placed in their career and achieve their goals. Feel free to reach out and see what you qualify for!

What Our Clients Say

Instead of having us talk about ourselves, why don’t we see what our clients have to say.

Mr. McGuirk was very instrumental in helping me determine my educational path. I gave him my list of career and training objectives. He charted my options and identified advantages for each course available. He also explained career potential for each class. His guidance contributed to my finding my new job. (Thank you! Thank you!)

I met Dewey at a job fair. He told me about the PMP program and grants available in the area. I have thought about attaining my PMP in the past with professional and volunteer projects. Dewey was a great coach. He knew what skills were needed int he market and best classes to take. He even let me know the best instructors to insure my success. The PMP training is one of the best training that I received. I would recommend New Horizons for the WIOA program for job seekers. Dewey knows the WIOA program and what classes qualify.

New Horizons provided all the resources I needed to pass the certification exams on my first try. (They) provided more help than anyone in finding a job--not only have they prepared me for the job but they have helped me get the "at bats" with interviews that are equally necessary for landing a job.
