Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Boomers reinvented society. Now theyre reinventing themselves, and AARP wants to facilitate that process.

AARP Crash Course in Finding the Work You Love explores both the motivations and the methods of those taking part in the social phenomenon known as recareering. Whether they are old enough to have earned their AARP card or not, a new generation of American workers is no longer counting the days until retirement; instead theyre 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: They must beef up their education or seek out retraining; cope with seismic lifestyle shifts such as less income and a new circle of friends; and reconcile themselves to the fact that even the most rewarding position is no panacea for lifes problems. 

Author Sam Greengard brings a wealth of knowledge to this timely topic: Since 1981 he has written about career issues for publications as diverse as The Chicago Tribune, Family Circle, The Los Angeles Times, MSNBC/MSN Online, Wired, and Workforce Management. Here, 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.

With this handbook to guide them, readers of any age can finally make the leap to finding the lifes work they will truly love.
