πŸ’Ό Websites That Help Older Workers Find Jobs (AARP Article)

If you’re looking for a job, you may already know about the popular employment websites such as Indeed, Monster, and ZipRecruiter. But in addition to those options for all age groups, there are several websites designed specifically to help people age 50 and older find positions.

(5) RetiredBrains, Cost: Free.

 

On this website, you start your job search by clicking on a button for full-time jobs, part-time jobs, warehouse jobs or hourly jobs. That choice then takes you to a results page on the Jobs2Careers website, where you can further narrow your choices based on where you live or what level of employment you’re seeking (entry, senior, executive, etc.)

 

The articles and tips available through the main RetiredBrains job search feature offer useful information that can help you figure out what type of work fits your situation and how to best compete successfully for openings. The tips range from advice on how to find seasonal jobs to how to prepare for a variety of work-from-home jobs.

(4) Rent A Grandma, Cost: $25 registration fee.

 

This one isn’t really a job search website but rather a gig work opportunity for older women. If you’re looking to earn money through providing babysitting, nannying, pet-sitting or other similar services, this website (also available as an app) connects with you directly with families who may hire you.

 

The company uses part of the $25 registration fee to do a background check of β€œgrandmas” who want to get work through the site. Once the site approves someone, the worker and the family interested in hiring them negotiate their own fees and hours.

(2) FlexJobs, Cost: Ranges from $9.95 per week to $69.95 per year.

 

While this website isn’t exclusively for older adults, it does focus on job openings that allow for flexible schedules and remote work, two qualities that are very popular among older job seekers. However, you do have to subscribe to the service to see the full details of job postings.

 

Its Jobs for Retirees section, which is free, offers timely, helpful articles about subjects such as how to fight ageism in your job search and tips for starting a new career at 50.
