You’ve heard it time and time again…After “this many” decades of working for one organization, “so-and-so” has now found themselves looking for a new job. Sometimes it’s voluntary, and sometimes not, but no matter what, transitioning careers late in life can leave anyone asking, “What now?”
This process of recareering, as this transition process is often called, is becoming more and more common as the hardworking baby boomers retire later and continue working even in retirement.
Recareering offers a unique set of challenges, including the risk of less pay and fewer health benefits. That said, there are positives to changing careers at an older age, which can in some cases include job flexibility and more relaxed work environments.
