One of the most overlooked age groups in today's workforce is elderly workers. People tend to count older workers out simply because of age. It is true there are some jobs someone who is 60+ may not be physically able to do, but you don't have to spend a lot of time training an older worker either. Studies show there is a huge advantage to hiring older workers.

The saying "with age comes experience." It's very true. More companies are actively seeking older employees because they show up on time, stay on the job longer and take fewer days off, they have a strong work ethic and technology gaps (if there are any) are easy to overcome with someone eager to learn. For all those reasons and more, that may be why there are 464 jobs for elderly workers in the state of Louisiana right now!

If you are an employer you may want to consider hiring seniors. If you are a senior looking to come back to the job market or a place where your need to stay busy will be put to good use, there are several businesses in SWLA that want to bring you on board.
