As part of Older Americans Month, National Able Network’s new Omaha, Nebraska office collaborated with Heartland Workforce Solutions to host a job fair for local job seekers to interview on-site with employers looking to hire!
Twelve employers representing various industries around Omaha attended the event to meet with the 78 job seekers in attendance. Thirty-six of the attendees were National Able Network Senior Community Service Employment Program clients, and an additional 19 attendees were older workers. In total, there were more than 50 job seekers over the age of 55!
The statistics from our job fair truly show that older workers are ready, willing and able to get back into the workforce!
“Older workers make for great employees,” said National Able Network Program Manager, Kristen Knobbe. “We are grateful for such a great turn out at the event and we are happy that many attendees left with job leads!”
