You’ve worked hard for a place to call home, a family, a job, and maybe a few extras. Orchestrating so many life events for others can leave you with little time for yourself. Finding the time to focus on your future is particularly important for women, who generally have more years to cover in retirement with fewer resources. However, planning for your own tomorrow is vitally important: If you don’t plan for yourself, someone else will plan for you.
Wilmington – The University of North Carolina Wilmington’s College of Health and Human Services and the Cameron School of Business have partnered with AARP of North Carolina to create a first-of-its-kind program that will address the challenges of, and offer solutions for the region’s post-50 population to ensure success of a secure and healthy retirement, the University announced today.
CHARLOTTE - Unemployment is especially difficult for 50+ workers because they tend to stay jobless longer than younger workers. Many have not been on a job interview in many years and feel unprepared to compete for new jobs. And many do not just how important social media – such as LinkdIn – is to employers in finding new talent. That is why AARP is offering workshops specifically for older workers in the Queen City.
CHARLOTTE - One of the best gifts someone can give to their community is the skill set they have developed over their working career. Here in Charlotte, we have a network of volunteers who come from a variety of backgrounds who have regular opportunities to give back to the community in meaningful ways.
