WASHINGTON, DC–AARP is launching a new resume advice and professional writing service tailored to help older workers who are looking for new jobs or switching positions.
You’ve already noticed that looking for a new job is different from what it was 10 years ago. Job searching can take a lot out of you.
In Age-Friendly/Livable Communities, there should be opportunities for older people to continue work after retirement, whether they choose to work for pay, or volunteer their skills.
You can find jobs that don’t require 40-plus hours a week in just about every industry and company. But why choose part-time work? You may miss the office camaraderie after stopping full-time work. Or you may want some extra income to travel or fund a hobby. Whatever the reason, don’t miss January’s Online Career Fair: Spotlight on Part-Time Work & Skills.
Hazel Whitt needed a boost. Unable to work due to an injury, Hazel was feeling a bit down on her luck. After a career as a health inspector, this grandmother of two from Austell found herself searching for her "what's next". While attending services at Word of Faith Family Worship Cathedral in Austell, Hazel learned about the Bronner Business Institute and their NxLevel business training course designed to equip people with the fundamentals of business and business development. The 4-month program guides participants through the development of an effective business plan, including money management and providing technical assistance for financing a business. Hazel was interested, but going back to school after 40 years when finances were tight didn't seem like a possibility.
