AARP to hold Vir­tual Ca­reer Fair

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - FIFTY PLUS -

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!”
