Finding a full time job, when you are a senior, is not always easy. Despite laws against age discrimination, prejudices are hard "kill". But, many employers have realized, that the reliability, experience and dedication to the job of senior employees outweighs most of the popular prejudices.They have come to realize the valued resource, which not so long ago, was left on the sidelines, is a great asset to any company.

Organizations like AARP and some others, have realized the assets of Seniors long ago and have noted employers, that are especially willing to engage senior employees, calling them "Senior Friendly Employers". Below is a list of some of these employers. Apply to them, when you look for a full time position.

The companies below offer in most instances the following benefits:

Employee Discount (in Retail Companies)
Direct Deposit
Prescription Drug Card
Employee Assistance Program
Annual Bonus Programs
Employee 401(k) Savings Plan
Paid Annual Leave
Medical/Life/Prescription/Dental & Vision coverage
Short-Term and Long Term Disability Program

Although, the current economic crisis has led to some store closings and a loss of jobs, especially in the financial and retail markets, there are still opportunities in most areas. Retail for instance has generally a high staff turnover and well trained people are always welcome! Retail jobs also have the advantage of being locally available.

Staffing and Employment Agencies


Staffing and employment agencies are a good source for full time employment. Although, the number of jobs offered is nowhere near those in retail, the average staffing office has between 5 and 20 employees.

The employment skills would require good salesmanship, the ability to interview people and to relate to employers as well as employees. Obviously, if you arrive with a human resources background, you have a "headstart". Salaries are often directly linked to performance bonuses and are therefore highly variable. The recruitment industry has generally a fairly high staff turnover.
If you do not want to work for a staff agency, you can obviously also use them to find you a job, either as a temporary or permanent employee.

    the announcement number
  • the description of the position
  • the requirements
  • the deadline to apply
  • the series/grade
  • the salary range
  • the promotion potential
  • the basis for rating
  • application guidelines such as format (OF 612, resume, etc..), resume guidelines and KSA questions.
The Federal Government hiring process being pretty strict, not respecting the rules and deadlines listed in the vacancy will get you irremediably disqualified, even if you are the most qualified candidate.
