Available Jones is an employment agency for mature or retired people, a concept whose time has come.
In any town, and especially in Columbia, Missouri, there are people who have retired, either voluntarily or involuntarily, and want to find a job. They may be much younger than the expected retirement age, older (like me) but fully enamored of the rough and tumble world of business, with much to offer. Some no longer need to work, but want to be involved. This person is often willing to work for a figure far below their former professional earnings; the pleasure of contributing outweighs salary considerations. Some may truly need to work, and wish to do so full-time, others want the freedom of working on a “project” or part-time basis.
These people are likely to be free from the pressures of children at home, seldom are in the throes of a high-maintenance romance, and own a dependable vehicle. With maturity comes the ability to deal with people, and to know how to proceed when the unexpected happens. Can they use computers? Some didn’t grow up in the computer age, they created the computer age.
It is my job to determine that they have the strong work ethic for which the mature generation is known, and to talk with former employers to check their resume credentials.
