Excerpts from Senior Community Service Employment Program posted by Christine Shelton:
The dynamics of the workforce are changing. Studies show people are living longer and many older workers want to continue working.
According to U.S. News and World Report, 70% of the human resource experts believe older workers have a strong work ethic.
And according to AARP, older workers have lower turnover rates and company cost to train new workers is decreased.
According to Monster.com employers can increase the hiring of part-time, highly experienced older workers to replace those individuals are are choosing to retire. This groups of workers will become an asset to companies that want to stay ahead.
Older workers are value-added and a hot commodity in the workforce!

Excerpts from Truckers Truth blog:
Here’s the truth about getting started as a new truck driver: You alone will determine whether or not you can be successful at this career.
Now, if that statement is true, then what should we be laboring over when we are trying to get this career started? Well, it certainly wouldn’t be which company to start with. It would be that we need to determine the answer to this one singularly important question:
“Do I have what it takes to be a successful truck driver?”
If I am going to be successful at trucking, then I must be responsible for my own results.
When one driver does really well at one company, and then another driver does really poorly at that same company, where must we lay the blame? Often times you will find that one driver fails while another has great success and they were both with the same dispatcher! This is an individual problem and it takes an individual to resolve it. When we focus all our energy on finding just the right company to start with, then we completely ignore the one thing that really matters for our success.
If you want to be successful at trucking you have got to take a good hard look in the mirror and determine that you will prove your worth to whomever takes you on as a new driver. The truth is that most of these companies are making an educated guess when they hire any new rookie driver. They have studied your application and are willing to give you a shot based on a few clues they have learned to recognize that might indicate you have the potential to survive. That is really all they have to go by. They are taking a chance on you, and it is all up to you to prove yourself worthy!
