Beyond Retirement: Careers for Ages 55+
“Millions of people in their fifties, sixties and seventies are searching for answers to the urgent question: ‘What’s next?’ All too often they are caught between chapters, living out twenty-first century life spans yet stuck with a life course designed for a bygone era. They face not only a void in identity, but a society ill-prepared to make use of their accumulated insights and talents.”
--The Big Shift: Navigating the New Stage Beyond Midlife by Marc Freedman
Career Moves Director Judy Sacks and Employment Specialist George Zeller attended the April 8th launch party of Marc Freedman’s new book, The Big Shift: Navigating the New Stage Beyond Midlife. Rather than simply retire, Freedman encourages the over 55 crowd to pursue an “encore career” that combines, as one New York Times article put it, “continued income, new meaning and a significant contribution to the greater good”. The book launch party was hosted by Discovering What’s Next® and co-sponsored by JVS.
