Dept. of Labor Information Session for Retirees and Rejoining the Workforce

ROCKLAND, Maine – Retirees considering returning to work part-time are invited to meet with Maine Department of Labor staff on Tuesday, September 10th at 2 p.m. The meeting, which is free and open to the public, will take place at the Bartlett Woods Retirement Community, 20 Bartlett Drive (just off outer Talbot Avenue) in Rockland.

With Maine’s low unemployment, employers are looking vigorously for workers and many area retirees have valuable skills attractive to businesses seeking to fill out their staffing.  This is especially true in the mid-coast, where there is a need for seasonal workers in a number of occupations important to the local economy including (but not limited to) jobs in retail, food-service and lodging.

Department staff will present ways that retirees can engage in part-time work with local businesses. Information will include ways to find possible employment and how to schedule such work, sometimes by working two or three days a week. Additional workers are especially needed at the end of the summer and across the winter holiday period.

To register for this informational meeting, contact Lori Schafer, Admissions Director, at 207-594-1159 or lschafer@bartlettwoods.com by September 9th. Space is limited.

Maine Department of Labor is an equal opportunity provider. Auxiliary aids and services are available to individuals with disabilities upon request.
