CareerBuilder Launches Job Search Site for Experienced and Retired Workers

CareerBuilder.com has launched PrimeCB.com, a job search site focused on connecting experienced and retired workers with potential employers. This follows a CareerBuilder.com survey showing that 22% of employers say given the shortage of qualified workers, they plan to rehire retirees from other companies in 2008 and that 14% of employers plan to provide incentives for older workers to stay with the company longer.
"According to AARP, nearly one-in-three U.S. workers will be over 50 by the year 2012," said Rosemary Haefner, Vice President of Human Resources at CareerBuilder.com. "While some mature workers are expressing an interest in postponing retirement, there’s still a large number of this critical segment of workers who will be leaving their current jobs in the next decade. The challenge now is to make sure we’re connecting those retirees who want to continue working with the employers who want to preserve the value of having these experienced and skilled workers at their companies."
