The economic downturn has created a need for many seniors to look at extending their careers in a difficult labor market...
Williamsville, NY (PRWEB) October 30, 2012
For the first time in decades, seniors are returning to the job market in astounding numbers. Thousands of seniors are unemployed or underemployed and have no idea where to begin obtaining the skills or information to compete successfully in today’s job market.
The program is presented by Dolah Saleh, a career coach, trainer, writer and educator with over 20 years of experience. A recognized expert in the field, Saleh provides seniors with the information, techniques and strategies needed to find employment quickly and the tools to launch a new career. A link to her recently published book on Amazon.com "Why You Can't Rely On Your Resume: The 6 Essential Must Do's To A Successful Job Search" can be found at http://www.GetTheRightCareer.com.
The career transition program includes a career and personality assessment, access to a wealth of free content, and job search MindMap. The program addresses the needs of those who have lost their source of employment, are reentering the job market after an extended hiatus, or want to launch a new career.
Seniors have been hit particularly hard during the Great Recession. They've been downsized, passed over in favor of younger and cheaper labor, their retirement savings dwindled and 401k plans were discontinued. Record numbers of seniors have been forced to rely on Social Security benefits long before they anticipated. Those opting for early retirement have seen a substantial reduction in their benefits.
The new economy has effectively killed the dreams and ambitions of many seniors. Instead of enjoying pleasurable pursuits, they’re busy trying to find employment in a shrinking job market and worrying about how to make ends meet. Those fortunate enough to locate new employment often find themselves working at low-paying jobs where their experience, skills and expertise are underutilized. The cost of transportation, food and related expenses are such that their take home pay is a mere pittance. Education is a key element for transitioning seniors and Get The Right Career administers programs specifically designed to assist the senior worker. The firm’s options helps with jobs, assists in bolstering faltering spirits and boosting self-confidence.
