9/17: Age of Opportunity Job & Volunteer Fair


Eau Claire (AGE OF OPPORTUNITY JOB AND VOLUNTEER FAIR)- With older workers representing an increasing percentage of the population, many chose to work or be active longer and employers responding to a tight job market with a low unemployment rate. The Annual Age of Opportunity Job and Volunteer Fair represents a unique opportunity to bring these interests together.

More than 30 local employers and volunteer organizations will be present on Tuesday, September 18, to meet
potential workers and volunteers at the annual Age of Opportunity Job & Volunteer Fair. The event runs from
9:00 a.m. to Noon at Oakwood Mall, in the Play Area Wing. The Eau Claire Area Chamber of Commerce has partnered to present the fair with the Chippewa Falls and Menomonie Chambers, as well as the Aging & Disability Resource Center. Held during “National Employ Older Workers Week,” the event is intended for mature workers (55 and over) looking for full or part time employment, project work, flexible hours, fun & social work atmospheres, and/or volunteer opportunities.

There is no charge for the event. The event was created to highlight older workers in the Chippewa Valley as a vibrant and energetic part of our community who have special skills and talents to share. Many seniors are interested in maintaining a link to the working world through part time employment or volunteer service. Free Resume and job search assistance will also be available, and assistance for veterans.
