Are you a retired engineer or scientist and looking for some work to do? Or are you a baby boomer with a technical background looking for a phased retirement? If so, I found a job portal site that may interest you.
The site is YourEncore which describes itself as follows:
YourEncore is an innovation services provider that recruits and manages a network of recently retired and/or highly experienced scientific and engineering professionals. The skills and expertise of these veteran Experts are matched with the project needs of our clients with the goal of accelerating innovation.
Although the focus of this retiree job and project portal is technology, consider this clarification:
YourEncore seeks to enroll in our proprietary network scientists, engineers, product developers, market research specialists, quality control experts, medical professionals and business development managers.
So the qualifications and backgrounds that are needed go beyond pure technology.
The advantages of participating in the YourEncore job network include both intellectual stimulation and … compensation!
To join, you must create a profile which includes a detailed resume and references. In other words, they don’t accept just anyone and experience is a must. That is good because experience is what baby boomers and retirees usually have plenty of and is what can distinguish us from younger job seekers.
Finally, one of the biggest advantages of placing yourself into the YourEncore network is that your marketing costs are nil. The network does it for you.
