Solving problems with the help of the boss
Are you ready for a new job? Want to start a second career?  Or, perhaps get a part-time gig?  AARP’s Job Board may be the solution to that question. Earlier this year, AARP launched a tool that allows 50+ jobseekers to identify opportunities that fit their unique skills and experiences.   The Job Board leverages AARP’s Employer Pledge Program, which includes 380+ companies, and gives job seekers direct access to their career sites. Membership in this program is an outward expression of the employers’ commitment to hiring across the age spectrum and leveraging the value experienced workers bring to the workplace.
