Jobs and Careers for Women Over 40

Category: Miscellaneous

Women in the middle stages of life might be looking for work after taking a few years off to have children. Some might be looking for a new job after being victimised by redundancy. Still others might be looking for that first job now that their kids are mostly grown up. Regardless of the reason for your job search, VERCIDA is one resource you can use to make your search successful.

You might be looking for a new job because of:

  • Redundancy
  • Change in marital status
  • Change in your health
  • A move to another part of the country
  • A desire to do something different

We offer job listings in dozens of categories and geographic areas. Each of our listings includes a job description with employment requirements, location, and other important information you need to know. All you have to do is find those jobs that are attractive to you and then make your application.

You Have Something to Offer

As a woman in the middle stages of life, you have plenty to offer your employer. If you have been steadily working since your 20s, you have to the practical experience that comes with time spent on the job. If you are returning to work after taking time off for children, you have the added benefit of knowing what it is like to balance work and family life. You have a unique perspective that could end up being very valuable to your workplace.

When you stop to think about how many different skills you have, and the kind of knowledge that you have acquired, you will soon realise that you have much more to offer employers than you might think.

Types of Jobs Available

You may have heard one of the many horror stories about women over the age of 40 trying to find a good job. However, remember that there are a number of success stories for every one horror story you read. Many women your age are successfully finding good jobs they love, jobs they have found through the VERCIDA database.

The types of jobs available to women over 40 are nearly endless. It is a matter of knowing what you want and knowing where to look. If you already know what you want, VERCIDA is your first place to look.

VERCIDA believes you have a lot to offer any employer. We hope you will take advantage of our jobs database to find that position we know is out there for you.

Despite the great strides that our society has made toward equality between men and women over the last several decades, women are still sadly overlooked far too often in the workplace. Discrimination based on gender and discrimination based on age are two separate issues, but many women in their 40s find themselves on the receiving end of it. The good news is that these attitudes are dying.

Here at VERCIDA, we are committed to putting dedicated and passionate people in contact with whoever they need to secure rewarding and enjoyable jobs. We firmly believe that a 40 year old woman is just as capable of pursuing a career as a 20 year old man would be. The world is not how it used to be for women at 40, VERCIDA encourages these women to dig deep and to think of all the skills and knowledge that they have accumulated over the years.

There are now a wide range of opportunities open to women of all ages. The range of jobs a forty year old woman can undertake today are in some cases more varied than those open to them 20 years ago. In today’s world, jobs for 40 year olds can easily turn into decades long careers. Rising standards of living and healthcare mean that people today can expect to live longer than ever. Many are also choosing to remain in work for as much of that time as is possible.

It can be intimidating looking to start a new career when you are older. When you are young and with the whole world in front of you, you don’t feel that same sense of urgency that comes with age. Sadly, many women end up limiting themselves and not fulfilling their potential because they are, understandably, put off from applying for work in the first place.

VERCIDA can pair you with the perfect job and employer for you as an individual. We consider your particular skills, knowledge, and situation in order to help you find the most fulfilling opportunities out there. We believe that people continue to gain value throughout their lives and we are committed to helping everyone who passes through our service to realise and reach t
