Retirement Community Jobs

Retirement community jobs offer many diverse career paths for professionals who excel at hospitality and enjoy working with active seniors on a daily basis. From a range of entry-level positions to clinical positions and upper-management, job seekers should include Hcareers in their search for retirement community jobs.

Hcareers is a blossoming job board for retirement community job opportunities. Employers in the industry need professionals to fill high-level retirement community jobs including executive director, general manager and manger. They also need registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and registered care attendants to fill clinical retirement facility jobs. Other positions available may include manager or director of resident services, wellness and activities directors, and positions in facilities management, grounds and maintenance and retirement community sales.

Did you know that every eight seconds someone in the U.S. turns 50? It's true, at least according to estimates. Our nation's 50 and over population will reach 100 million in 2012 and will continue to increase from there. One in five Americans, or 20 percent of the population, will be considered "elderly" by 2050. While some will need to live in nursing homes, and others will choose assisted living facilities, those who seek a high-end, luxury retirement experience will gravitate towards resort-style retirement communities.

Today's retirement community resident is often younger than in the past. As soon as the kids are out of college, older couples often decide to downsize their home �and retirement communities are there to fill that need with well-designed properties and attractive amenities. These residents are more active; some still commute to jobs or work from home. And these modern seniors want more than shuffleboard courts and hot tubs. They want well-equipped fitness centers and weight rooms, computer and media rooms, and activities designed to allow them to enjoy life after retirement.

As a result, these new demands increase the need for professionals to fill a variety of retirement community jobs. A 2008 survey by Mather Lifeways revealed that 22 percent of retirement communities offer continuing education to their residents via the web. That number is expected to increase to 69 percent in the foreseeable future. Fitness classes and recreational activities are expected to be offered by more than 52 percent of retirement communities. You can see why wellness and activities coordinators are in such high demand to fill retirement community jobs.

If you're ready to begin your retirement community job search, now is an excellent time to do so. Retirement community jobs are increasing, so you should be able to find one that suits your skills and experience, whether you desire entry-level jobs in a retirement community or a clinical or management role. Remember Hcareers, and check the job board regularly for the newest retirement community jobs.
