AARP to hold Virtual Career Fair
As part of a long-standing commitment to provide information, tools and programs to help workers 50-plus take the next step no matter where they are in their career journey, AARP is hosting its next Virtual Career Fair Sept. 20 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This live online event provides those 50-plus with the opportunity to recharge their job search and connect with local and national employers — all from the comfort of their own home. Home Helpers is thrilled to participate in this event.
During the Virtual Career Fair, participants will have the opportunity to chat with recruiters, submit résumés and view job openings; learn how volunteering can help recharge a job search; get timely job search advice during four live webinars and a half-dozen live scheduled chats; play games that help attendees brush up on job search skills (and enter for a chance to win a prize); connect with other job seekers; and get a sneak peek at AARP’s new Work & Jobs Skills Inventory that will help job seekers polish the digital skills they need to find a job or keep the job they have.
“We’re excited about the possibility to connect with experienced workers who may want to explore being a caregiver,” said Home Helpers of Glenmoore owner Peg Galipeau. “In my experience they still have a lot to offer and a terrific perspective along with a willingness to help others. It should be a wonderful event for everyone involved!”
