Employment For Seniors is the premier resource linking mature adults with employment opportunities.  If you are 50 years of age or older, we are here to help you find employment!  If you are a Central Ohio employer, our mature, talented, skilled and dependable job seekers will provide significant value to your organization. 

EFS has provided career assistance and resources to nearly 30,000 clients, free of charge, over the past 40 years.  Our trained volunteer job counselors work with clients, prepare them for their job search, and connect them to employers through our job referral process.   Registration is an easy ½ hour appointment and can be scheduled by calling the EFS office at 614/863-1219.

Local employers have found a highly skilled workforce by posting their positions, free of charge, on the EFS JobMatch system.  With assistance from the EFS staff, employers are guided through job postings and initial applicant screening. Employers can also utilize the Annual Senior Career Expo to network and connect to hundreds of valuable applicants.

We look forward to working with you at Employment For Seniors! You can easily reach us at 614/863-1219 or by email at info@employseniors.org
