This past week was a big week for Over 50 and Out of Work!
- We have a featured column Boomers – Desperately Seeking Jobs in the Nov. issue of the online news magazine Stay Thirsty. The column was picked up by Google News.
- Market Talk, published throughout the day by Dow Jones Newswires, wrote about our site in today’s post The Jobs Report, in Context.
- We were interviewed about the project on Deborah Shane’s Metropolis blogtalk radio show.
- We conducted two new expert interviews that will be added to our site soon:
Marcie Pitt-Catsouphes, co-director of the center on aging and work/workplace flexibility at Boston College
David DeLong, author, consultant and a research fellow at the MIT Age Lab
Next week, we’ll be in Las Vegas (Nevada has the highest statewide rate of unemployment) to conduct interviews with residents who are 50-plus and jobless.
