One of our Life Reimagined for Work employers, Staples, told me that they are actively recruiting Team Supervisors for their stores. Since they have worked with AARP in the past to source candidates for various positions, they encourage applications from job seekers age 50+. Here is a job description:
"Primary responsibility for managing selling floor and operational activities to maintain an environment that supports and strengthens our Staples brand. The team lead is responsible for coaching and mentoring our sales associates on building rapport, comfortably connecting and presenting solutions to identify and take action on selling opportunities throughout the store while creating a customer centric environment.. This individual must ensure high customer engagement while demonstrating the ability to multi task and assign operational needs appropriately based on customer traffic."

While it may not be a career move, it may be something to do while you continue your search. There are no guarantees and you have to go through the Staples application process. So check out a Webinar we did a couple of years ago on Standing Out in a Crowded Job Market for some useful tips: http://bit.ly/tSvHEL
