Finding a way to earn an income is critical now more than ever for Boomers. The challenges of getting a job are now even tougher due to changes in the job market, workplace, and types of employment due to the coronavirus pandemic.
So, what can you do now?
In this ProBoomer interview, Kerry Hannon lays out critical actions and steps that can put you in the best position possible to adapt to the changing world of employment and sources of earned income and to do so in a way that fits in the life and kind of work and purpose you want in this stage of life. Kerry is a leading authority and strategist on career transitions, entrepreneurship, personal finance, and retirement. She is an award-winning, best selling author with 13 books and is a regular contributor to the New York Times, MarketWatch, Forbes, and NextAvenue.
Especially as “older workers” facing ageism and even age discrimination, preparing for changes in the workplace, the nature of employment, and the job search are critical. So too is considering something totally different that may not be a “job” at all, such as freelancing, contracting, consulting in the Gig Economy, or even being an entrepreneur.
Millions of Baby Boomers were already concerned about finding a job or earning income every before COVID-19. Most Boomers have little or no retirement savings and social security will not finance the current lifestyle for people over 50 or 60.
Kerry’s interview will help you be ready for when the need and opportunity arise. This is a critical time requiring new ways of thinking and new approaches.
