Getting the Job You Want After 50 For Dummies

By Kerry Hannon

Book Description

Getting the Job You Want After 50 for Dummies is your guide to finding rewarding employment when you're over 50. From building an online presence to revitalizing your résumé to negotiating a salary, this book has you covered — from cover to cover!

Perhaps you are just coming back into the workforce or have been laid off and need to find work. You could be looking to make a career change or want to pursue your passion and find more meaning in your work. You may be relocating or want a job that gives you more flexibility.

The fact that people are living longer, healthier lives opens the doors to possibilities in a variety of fields you may want to pursue. Think of it as a bonus chapter of your life. It's a time when, perhaps, the big-ticket items are behind you — paying for children's educations maybe, or a mortgage — and you're free to seek work that's more meaningful and, if you're lucky, not so focused on the size of the paycheck.

Whatever your reason, you want a job, and you want it now. You've come to the right place.
