The Austin area has the nation’s fastest-growing population of people between 55 and 64, and the second fastest-growing population of people 65 and over. And many of these newcomers are looking for work.
AustinUP has four job fairs scheduled in 2022 to match available job opportunities with workers who are 50+. The events, which include presentations on job-related topics, are held in four different locations to help potential employees connect with employers located in or close to their neighborhoods. Admission is free for attendees and $50 for employers (exhibitors).
By creating these job fair opportunities, AustinUP is working to enlighten business leaders and human resource directors about the strengths of older adults in the workplace, as well as the value of a multigenerational workforce.
