Use community resources to kick start you encore hustle - Hustler Daily Thumbs Up - August 30
Hello fellow Encore Hustlers
Mr EH has been a lifelong lover of public libraries. One of his fondest childhood memories is being allowed to apply for an adult library card while still in elementary school. Libraries continue to be a great resource and not just as a place for books, DVDs and periodicals. Today libraries offer a multitude of programs for the community and can be the place to kick off your encore career.
Check out this story about the Arlington (Virginia) County Library System and their hosting, throughout September, of a series of programs for retirees, that includes workshops on helping seniors find their encore hustle. The program is a joint venture between the library and the Arlington Employment Center, and the Alexandria/Arlington Regional Workforce Council.
The programs include job counseling, using social media for job hunting and resume writing. The program also has a +50 job fair to match seniors with employers.
Check out your nearby library and see if similar programs are being offered. If they don't, ask why not?
