How to Participate in Careers in Aging Week: April 18 – 24

Workforce | March 15, 2021 | by Tessa Atkinson-Adams

LeadingAge is partnering with the Gerontological Society of America, AHCA/NCAL and Argentum on Careers in Aging Week. Check out our collection of sample social media posts and images to share the week of April 18 – 24.

While job fairs and site visits are not an option during the pandemic, we still have a great opportunity to highlight the aging services field and the incredible, heroic individuals who work in it. 

We encourage you to schedule posts throughout the week to build awareness about current job openings at member organizations -- and send displaced workers from retail, hospitality, and restaurants in your community to the LeadingAge Job Board. Include #CareersInAging in all posts.
