Career or Job?

Remember when we were younger and beginning to look for work how we were told to seek out a Career and not just settle for a job? There was  glamour, prestige and big bucks � plus lots of stress -- in having a career whereas having a job was run of the mill, mundane and unsatisfying (even if it paid the bills).

 

Only you can decide which has been your experience. But if you are still looking for answers about your next career or job, check out The Over 40 Job Search Guide, by Gail Geary, who was an English, speech, and drama teacher and later earned a law degree.

 

Her guide says an ideal career should include:

 

  • Interests
  • Abilities
  • Career Marketability
  •  Earnings
  • Values and Lifestyle

 

Geary’s book also provides help in the following areas, which could be use to any Boomer seeking a new career path:

 

  • Identify and promote your age advantages
  • Target healthy, hiring, over-40 careers
  • Create an ageless resume
  • Age-proof your interview.
