Welcome Kelly Services -- Hello Jobs for 50 Plussers!

After several months of communication and discussion, Kelly Services is piloting a partner program with Gen Plus (www.genplususa.com) to target the 50 plus jobseeker. Over the next few months we'll be trying to match up job openings that are decidedly 50 plus favorable with jobseeker needs and help get you back into the market faster.

One area of particular interest is that of substitute teaching. You'll start to notice more and more postings cropping up on the Gen Plus site and you'll also be surprised at how easy it is to become a substitute teacher in many states.

Kelly Recruiters also engage in passive search and this morning, in our conference call, one of the questions came up about how to access resumes of our jobseekers. So head's up. If you haven't signed up (free) as a jobseeker on Gen Plus, please do so asap (www.genplususa.com/work.aspx). As well, if you have not posted your resume, please do so asap. Every minute you are not making yourself available is another minute wasted in your job search.

Kelly is looking for you. Don't disappoint them (or me!) Get online and start applying to the jobs posted on Gen Plus this week. I'll be posting on specific opportunities as they come up.

It is VERY hard to find employers who will open their doors to the 50 plus market. Kelly has a division dedicated specifically to the mature worker and they get a big vote from me for proactively helping to get this program together with Gen Plus.
