Product Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

“It's not enough anymore to know what you want to be when you grow up. You also need to think about what you want to do next, and after that, and then during retirement, too. Fortunately, a thick brainstorm of a book by Kerry Hannon, Great Jobs for Everyone 50+, can help job-seeking baby boomers -- and those right on their heels -- find work that, as the subtitle puts it, keeps them happy, healthy and able to pay the bills…. It's a lot of ground to cover, but Hannon's practical, empowering book is an all-encompassing career resource for older workers in a variety of life situations.”—USA Today
