Paperback | E-book
295 pages
September 2012

The how-to guide to finding profitable, fulfilling work after 50


Book Description


Aimed at workers age 50+ looking for a new job — whether they have been laid off or taken early retirement, need supplemental income, or want to pursue an encore career — Great Jobs for Everyone 50+ is the definitive guide to finding lasting financial security and personal and professional fulfillment. Opportunities abound — the trick is knowing where to look and what to expect. Whether readers are interested in trying jobs they've long dreamed of doing, or just want something with flexible hours that brings in a little extra income, this book covers all the options.

As Americans live longer and healthier lives, the desire to work longer — for the income, the mental engagement or the chance to give back — has grown. But there is little guidance for the 50+ crowd looking for work and few role models who've blazed a path. In Great Jobs for Everyone 50+, author and personal finance, retirement, and career transitions expert Kerry Hannon shows the way, with compelling stories from people who've been there. Presenting the nitty-gritty details of available job opportunities, wages to expect, typical hours, and the qualifications and savvy needed to get hired, the book is loaded with practical advice on how to prepare both professionally and financially to start out on a new adventure.

  • Shows where the best opportunities for new employment lie
  • Helps readers find profitable and rewarding jobs to save for retirement
  • Understands that different workers want different things from their jobs and shows how to cast a wide net to find an opportunity that fits
  • Provides incredible insights into working after 50 from Kerry Hannon, a nationally renowned expert in personal finance, retirement, and career transitions

Motivational, inspirational, and thoroughly practical, Great Jobs for Everyone 50+ explains how to find part-time, temporary, work-at-home or seasonal employment in profitable, rewarding jobs.
