AARP Eye Center
This Labor Day is one of the craziest in the holiday’s history.
As states begin to reopen their economies, many people who have lost their jobs or been laid off worry about finding work. Others prepare to return to a much different work environment than the one they left in the spring. And still others are working from home, in ways they could never have envisioned six months ago.
Whatever your situation, AARP offers help in adapting to the new work environment.
For older adults, a job is not just a way to make money; it’s an opportunity to share decades of experience, to stay active physically and mentally, and to both mentor and learn from colleagues of all ages.

As we all respond to unexpected difficulties that the coronavirus pandemic has created, AARP is providing a number of tools and resources to help people 50 and older build careers with companies that welcome their talents. If you are looking for work, our online Job Board can help connect you with full-time and part-time openings. Many of these positions are with companies that have signed AARP’s Employer Pledge, in which they acknowledge the value of experienced workers and promise to recruit across diverse age groups.
Using the Job Board, you can look for work without leaving home. You may have fewer opportunities to meet with recruiters during the pandemic, so it’s important to highlight your skills and achievements effectively when you apply for jobs online. If you haven’t updated your résumé recently, make sure it’s polished. With AARP’s Resume Advisor tool, you can get a free critique of your résumé.
