Step 1: Browse Workforce50 Jobs - Our Exclusive Job Board Listings

The short form is located in the right sidebar and allows you to register as many individual job searches on ZipRecruiter as you would like. It is keyword driven and delivers the results to your email inbox. For the most effective searches, create a separate search for each job title or function that you are interested in.
Step 4: Search Current Jobs with our Favorite Employers
One of the common complaints from older workers during a job search is that employers are looking for younger people and may not be age-friendly in their hiring practices or recruitment efforts. We have provided a section of the website that lists employers based on their reputation for being age-friendly in hiring. Browse the list of these employers and browse their current job listings.
- Favorite Employers in Education
- Favorite Employers in Healthcare
- Favorite Employers in Government
- Favorite Employers in Insurance
- Other Favorite Corporate Employers
Step 5: Search Current Jobs by Career
In the career section of the website, Workforce50 worked to identify a subset of careers that could be of interest for mid to late-career changers. These careers generally have limited specific educational requirements for workers looking for a change in direction but not a significant investment in more education at this stage in life. Further, the careers listed were identified as suitable for older workers. Relative compensation levels along with jobs data from the government (currently being updated) is displayed. On each individual career page, there is a link to its current job listings.
