When Encore PBC was founded, we included in our mission connecting people over 50 to new work opportunities. Since then, we’ve found an ever- increasing interest and need for this assistance. For any number of reasons, many of us over 50 are looking for work. At our recent monthly Meetups we’ve featured experts to help our constituents in their job searches and our Resources page also includes helpful information. Here we will post new work opportunities that come our way.
