While many baby boomers have plenty of relevant work experience, it can be difficult for them them to find fulfilling work after retiring, especially when many of them are interested in shorter term commitments that allow them to grow in and explore new roles -- which is where BoomersPlus comes in.
Founded by Rick Emberley, BoomersPlus aims to find work for retirees, and matches them with businesses that are looking to hire contractors. With so much career experience behind them, these retirees are the perfect candidates for contract positions, which require employees to quickly grasp a role.
As Emberley explains, he was inspired to create BoomersPlus when he and other retirees he knew expressed their desire to retire, but weren't ready to completely give up working. Currently, "BoomersPlus.com has more than 4,100 professional retirees in its database and upwards of 130 employers using the service."
