What a Way to Make a Living!

If you love a productive day, you shouldn’t need to leave the workforce if you don’t want to. Your age shouldn’t affect your ability to get and keep a job. Plus, there are laws that protect against age discrimination in the workplace. The good news is that many employers value an experienced individual with sound judgment and strong work ethic for both their contributions to the company and their ability to mentor the next generation in the workforce.

Despite these advantages, some older adults find it difficult to find or keep employment. Or they may want to switch to a different job that better accommodates their changing abilities and lifestyle. As a result, there are several programs available in the community specifically for the mature worker.

Empowerline can help you find connections to jobs where you can be valued for your knowledge, confidence, and organizational skills.
