Do you ever think that you might want to look for another full-time job, or, if you’re retired, do you ever think you might want to go back to work full-time? Crazy as it may seem, some people think they may have pushed the retirement button too quickly and are now thinking of going back to work. If this is the case, you may want to check out a new program for those of us who are over 50. Opps, did I really write that? Over 50 doesn’t necessarily mean over the hill.
The Tarrant County College District is helping people who want to go back to work with a special program called BACK TO WORK 50+. There is already in place a team that will help you update your job search strategies, practice for interviewing and networking, and enroll in training programs that employers value. Sounds interesting and informative.
You can even get an AARP Foundation free job search guide.
Another thing you can do is register for a local Information Session. At the session, you can learn smart strategies for job searching after age 50. Also, you can apply for the BACK TO WORK 50+ Coaching and Training program that includes tuition assistance for qualified candidates. Sold? If so, you need to know that the next Information Session is coming up on February 18. That’s just around the corner, so you’ll want to call this toll free number to learn more (855) 850-2525. Visit <www.aarp.org/backtowork50plus>, too.
This program is available to all, without regard to race, color, national origin, disability, sex, age, political affiliation, or religion and is funded in part by Walmart Foundation.
If you’re serious about going back to work, this sounds like a program that you can use to your advantage. Call and see what happens. The best of luck to you!
