Dignitysecondcareers.org : Job portal for senior citizens

0

Finally something for senior citizens on the net ! ICICI Prudential life and dignity foundation announced launch of a job portal – www.dignitysecondcareers.org – for senior citizens.

dignitysecondcareers

I must say this can become a real boon to retired and senior citizens. Each one of us have surely come across senior citizens who have wealth of experience in their kitty and have lot of time on hands – and want to work. In most cases, it is not for money, but they are just looking for a productive way to spend their free time.

Retired people above the age of 50 years can post their resumes on the portal for a small fee of Rs. 100 (I do not agree with this, they should have kept it free). Employers can access the resumes for jobs which suit the profile of the candidates

Even from Employers point of view, they do have jobs where they can utilize the skills of senior citizens. There are also social organizations and NGO’s looking for people to do voluntary work. dignitysecondcareers portals helps them to reach out to senior citizens willing to work.

My only reservation is that portal comes across as very amateurish and not much effort has gone to make it aesthetically appealing. I hope ICICI is serious about this and take effort in promoting it to masses !

    Is this Portal active?

    How come no one has posted any comments for several months?

    Has it been able to place Senior Citizens regularly?

    If no, what do you think is the reason for failure of a good idea, please let me know.

    It is a wonderful idea to help senior citizens in this way.  As any senior citizen
    can vouch, they are generally neglected in the society because they are aged
    and are in the evening of their life.   Except a few percentage of senior citizens
    in India who are financially sound, the remaining really suffer.   Though the news brings rain, many senior citizens will not be able to work for long hours, but can spare 3 to 4 hours a day.  Being a retired Head of a department in the
    Canadian High Commission I prefer to do social work to keep me busy.
