Older displaced leaders seeking work have a new online resource to help connect them with businesses with a special interest in workers with long experience. AARP launched a new website in July called, Work Reimagined.
The site is powered by LinkedIn, the career-oriented social media site.
Work Reimagined is the first talent exchange dedicated to helping companies find experienced workers and to helping experienced professionals connect to more satisfying careers.
For businesses hiring, Work Reimagined helps them target the most appropriate, experienced workers.
For people looking for work, the site lets you access unique, personalized job leads from employers who respect depth of knowledge and experience.
The site also is a place to share experiences, challenges and dreams for the future via groups and discussions on LinkedIn.
Working with AARP, participating companies have signed a pledge to level the playing field for experienced workers. Employers who sign the Pledge agree that they have:
- Openness to the value of mature workers
- Nondiscriminatory HR policies
- Immediate hiring needs (at the time of Pledge signature)
