Older workers bring valuable life experience to the workforce
KENNEBUNK — Get out of the house and stay active! Earn extra fun money. Share your time and talents this season! Enjoy a flexible schedule. Share your love of our community. Learn something new! These are just a few of the reasons why retirees re-enter the workforce.
And that’s a very good thing, because not only do retired folks have so much to offer, local hotels, shops and restaurants sure need ‘em here in the Kennebunks. The Older Employees Staffing Alliance is planning a job fair in a comfortable, low-key setting at The Center, specifically for older adults, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, April 2, in Lower Village. The fair is free and open to the public.
Local businesses are looking for part-time and full-time seasonal front-desk, reservation and sales agents, gift shop attendants, night auditors, maintenance and landscaping workers, housekeepers, cruise and bus greeters, concierge staff, hosts, bartenders, breakfast attendants, pet sitters, childcare, pool and marina attendants, and more.
Job-seekers must RSVP in advance of the fair, visiting either from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or 12:30 to 2 p.m. Call the Kennebunk-Kennebunkport-Arundel Chamber of Commerce at (207) 967-0857 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
