Nice and informative site for jobs.
I had no idea there were so many places to search job websites specifically for us Baby Boomers.
I appreciate the list here all in one place…
Being retired is nice but you never know when you need a little extra money!
Thank for your wonderful post , It really helps us for job placement. Highly appreciated
This is a great list of locations to find jobs for baby boomers! However, I want to emphasize that they are able to look in the same places as the younger generation. Just because you are older doesn’t mean job searching should change at all!
great post for job seekers and thanks for the tips . sometimes i really need a push and this post did just that.
Just wanted to give our opinion about boomers finding work when you are over 60.We are trying to live on s.s. and have both filled out at least 25 app each.He has 50 yrs exp in food business and i 25 yrs cashier.The fresh mkt in jupiter looked down their noses at us as if to say,you must be kidding looking for work at your age.The harbor side resturants in jupiter did the same.Another place was home depot,wallgreens,career resources sent out several resumes and still nothing.Publix where i worked for 10 yrs hired young kids and cut our hrs .
Baby Boomers Job seekers are looking for job updates in various web portals, I appreciate for updating various job vacancies in single point. List given in article will be helping many of them looking for Baby Boomers Jobs.
A good list of specialist sites for people to refer to, if people want to work and are fit enough to do so, why shouldn’t they? However, I do agree with the poster above, that the baby boomer generation should have every right to apply for mainstream jobs too.
If you’re not having much success finding a job, it may be your CV/resume that’s letting you down, rather than your age.
Finding work in this economy can be challenging. We’re starting to see a transition away from long-term employment to job-hopping and part-time employment. It’s important that people see the alternatives to traditional jobs. I highly recommend that people look into doing online freelancing or other alternate money-making opportunities.
It’s also worth mentioning that baby boomers are still able to look for employment the same way that everyone else does. Sure, these specialist sites and resources are a great help, but it’s definitely a good idea to use regular job boards and such too.
