Thriving in the Job Market

In addition, AARP collaborates with employers that value experienced workers via its Employee Pledge Program (EPP) to create an age-friendly environment for job seekers, and AARP confronts age discrimination in the workplace by being a leader and an advocate on behalf of older workers.
