Program to assist older adults who want to return to work

"New Horizons: The Place for Unretirement" is a new program for retirees who want to reenter the workforce or start their own business. The program is a hands-on, practical minilab where participants will have the opportunity to improve their skills, learn new skills, revise their resumes and prepare for an exciting new workplace life. Sponsored by Coastal Carolina University's Division of Extended Learning and Public Services, sessions will be held Monday, Feb. 12 and Wednesday, Feb. 14 from 9 a.m. to noon and by appointment on Feb. 19, 21, 28 and March 5 and 7 between 9 a.m. and noon in Coastal's Society House on campus. Fee for the program is $69. The fee for Lifelong Learning Society members is $49.

The program will allow participants to examine their interests, strengths and desired goals. Those interested in career goals such as a return to higher education or starting their own business will receive assistance toward making those goals a reality.

Some of the sessions will focus on practical aspects of securing a new career such as resume updating, mock interviews and job matching. Interviews will be arranged with potential employers.

For more information, contact Peter Balsamo, dean of Coastal's Division of Extended Learning and Public Services at 349-2648 or visit the Web site at www.coastal.edu/learn.
