December job numbers were released last week and the number of jobs added continued the trend of growth seen throughout 2017.

When we discuss employment numbers on AirTalk, we often get calls from older listeners who have been laid off and have difficulty finding work; listeners who don’t see employment number gains translating into their realities.

So we’ve brought on a career coach to discuss the specific barriers that face worker over the age of fifty, and what they can do to regain employment.

If you’re an older worker struggling to find work, call us with your questions. And if you were successful in re-entering the workforce, what did it take?

Call us at 866-893-5722.
