Robert K. Critchley has written a What Color Is Your Parachute? for the over-50 crowd. The book is timely in that changes in the workplace, medicine and technology have made it possible - and in some cases economically mandatory - for older people to remain in the workforce as full-time and part-time employees, temps and consultants. For many people in this age bracket, however, it’s been many years since they last plunged into a job search. getAbstract.com highly recommends this book, which tends to the basic, for all readers in this newly emerging group.
In this summary, you will learn
- How changes in health, technology and business have opened new opportunities for older workers;
- How to balance work, life and retirement after age 50, and
- Skills and techniques for older people to employ when looking for a new job.
