Abstract:

Boomers reinvented society; now they're reinventing themselves, and AARP wants to facilitate that process. This book explores both the motivations and the methods of those taking part in the social phenomenon known as recareering. A new generation of American workers is no longer counting the days until retirement; instead they're seeking greater fulfillment in their personal lives by tackling new--and often much more socially significant--work. Switching careers is a challenge at any age, yet boomers may have more to overcome than their younger counterparts. Author Greengard shows readers how to sort out their feelings about their existing career; successfully transition to a new one; and work toward a greater sense of balance in their daily lives. Profiles of recareering veterans show how others have attained their own goals. These are rounded out by tips, quizzes, worksheets, how-to sidebars, and other practical resources.--From publisher description.
