What We do
The way people feel about retirement is changing. More and more seniors want back into the workforce seeking rewarding opportunities and Second Act is helping you find jobs. Through our proven matchmaking process, we connect seniors and retirees with employers looking for a proven professional who can fill a need, take on a project, or mentor young talent. We take time to make a personal connection and help you highlight the skills and experiences you have that employers are currently seeking.
The U.S. economy is humming and financial indicators predict this trend will continue. However, several factors are converging to cause a severe talent shortage and Second Act is creating a new awareness in the recruiting sector that will fill this need. We are cultivating unique relationships with employers and urging them in various ways to take a second look at qualified senior applicants. At the same time, Second Act is making retirees aware that options are available for those who want or need to work.
Who We Are
"I am a retiree, similar to many of our clients, having finished a 42 year West Michigan career in the scrap metal recycling industry in March of 2017. For me, redefining traditional retirement is balancing a busy schedule of consulting work, non-profit board work, and launching Second Act with Penny. I am looking forward to helping you start your second act."
"I am a former broadcast journalist and nonprofit consultant. After field producing documentaries for cable TV networks I became a stay-at-home mom. Fifteen years later, I was looking to get back into the workforce when I met Jim and knew Second Act would be my future. I’ve enjoyed living in many places perfecting my journalism craft and I channel my love of storytelling as co-founder of the company. I look forward to hearing your story."
