A 'dream job' can be a fulfilling finale to working years

For Terry Tazioli of Seattle, taking a buyout at age 60 from a longtime newspaper editing post was a chance to do something different and leave a troubled industry.

Tazioli got a tip from a colleague, which led to a job interview to host a TV show featuring nonfiction authors on TVW, Washington state's public affairs network. But Tazioli had never been on camera before and was somewhat nervous.

"I just figured, what the heck, go for it. I did think I was too old and that nobody would like me. Boy, was I wrong," he said.

His strong work experience gave him confidence. He knew he could translate his journalist's skills into interviewing people and telling stories. And he had always liked public speaking. He landed the position at TVW's Author's Hour, a job he loves.

"My goal is to be the oldest on-air talk-show host in America," said Tazioli, now 63, laughing. "I could be doing this for a long time. It's my way of raging against the 'too old' stuff."

The AARP Foundation offers tools and tips for older workers on its WorkSearch website.
