Encore Careers: 6 Tips that Help Baby Boomers Get Hired

Statistics show that the average woman lives another 23 years past 65 and the average man lives another 18 years. What would you like to do with that time?

This is the second part of a three-piece series on Encore Careers. It’s no secret that Baby Boomers are planning to remain in the workforce past the traditional retirement age. While some Baby Boomers continue to enjoy their first careers, some may want to reenter the workforce after taking some time off. Here are 6 tips that will get you ready for that Encore Career:

  1. Know what your passions are; know what you’re good at
  2. Check with your local network to find out where jobs are
  3. Use the Internet to search for senior employment opportunities
  4. Update your resume showcasing your talent and experience
  5. Go to school and utilize community education programs
  6. Volunteer to increase your chances of getting hired
