Event Description:
On April 3, 5th, 2017, we will hold a full day of events for Careers in Aging Week. In the morning, from 9am-1pm, the Department of Aging Studies will host a Caregiver Support seminar, co-sponsored with AARP. In the afternoon we will have a brief presentation to highlight demographic trends in the United States and the corresponding career opportunities in aging, which will be particularly useful for those in other disciplines (approximately 30 minutes). Students will show a brief 30 minute film that they have produced for this event, which will be a montage of career advice from those currently working in aging-related fields. Then, we will have a panel discussion focused on employment opportunities and advice for those interested in a career in aging. Panel discussants will include individuals from a range of employment settings (better word?). For example, we have invited a long-term care administrator, Florida Blue health insurance agent, county health department employee, a hospice nurse, and a representative from Council on Aging. Next, University career development staff will discuss strategies and advice for locating and applying for jobs, internships, and graduate school. Finally, students will have an opportunity to have their resumes and cover letters reviewed in an interactive workshop by Aging Studies faculty and career development staff. Monday, April 3rd
