Older workers today are seeking out and applying for new jobs, rather than continuing in the same old grind of what they have done in the years past. They are looking at themselves in the mirror and realizing that they might have another 25 or 30 years ahead of them.

They are also seeking work particularly if they think they may not be able to afford to support themselves for that many years  now. A lot of times that means  choosing something different than they have in the past ; maybe an encore career that is something they have always wanted to do but never gotten around to yet.

Many Baby Boomers are now looking for something we call “cyclical employment”; where they can hold a full-time job in retirement but with time off or breaks for travel,maybe time to do home projects or simply some down time to spend with families. 

Join Flex Hour Jobs as we discuss some of the opportunities and  barriers older workers face in that job hunt. With all of the new technologies there are many possibilites to think about.
