Job Hunting For Older Workers

Jan Jankovic/wikimedia

Recoveries from recessions do not affect all sectors of society equally, we've learned. 

Just ask older workers who lost jobs in the Great Recession.  They've had some bumps and bruises on the way to finding jobs that match their qualifications and salary requirements. 

The Successful Aging Institute at Lane Community College takes note of the trend, and offers an evening workshop on job-hunting resources for workers 50 and up, Tuesday (June 7) at the Eugene Library, downtown.  SAI Director Barbara Susman joins us with a short course on where and how older workers should be looking.
