You’ve amassed a treasure trove of wisdom, knowledge and skills. Wouldn’t it be great if you could connect with organizations seeking talented individuals like YOU?

You can and with Silver is Gold, it’s easy!

SILVER IS GOLD facilitates talent connections between businesses and organizations in Dayton with immediate needs AND actively-engaged retired professionals who have focused expertise and experience to address these needs.

SILVER IS GOLD talent can be engaged in a number of ways, including:

  • Short-Term Assignments
  • Consulting (Project-Based OR Ongoing)
  • Part-time/Job-Sharing
  • Mentorship & Coaching
  • Business Start-up Trusted Advisor
  • Expert Volunteering (for non-profits)

Imagine a Future Assignment as a Silver Intern

Remember the movie, The Intern? Robert DeNiro plays a 70-year-old widower who becomes a senior intern at an online fashion website where he forms an unlikely alliance with the firm’s workaholic CEO, played by Anne Hathaway.

Now imagine if you stepped into a similar Silver Intern role, where you might serve as Trusted Advisor and coach for several individuals and/or departments within a company.

It’s possible and we can help you gain consideration for such a role.
