A Must Read for Those Considering Career Changes,
This review is from: The Encore Career Handbook: How to Make a Living and a Difference in the Second Half of Life (Paperback)
There are beginning to be a flow of wonderful books that assist folks in their mid-to-later career lives with guidance in steps to consider and move into a new field (often termed encore careers). This one is a must read. It is practical, very informative and enjoyable to read. The book pairs real life experiences (yes, you are not alone) with practical how-tos (like how do you write a resume if you have not written one in twenty years).
If you are considering an encore career in the nonprofit sector you will find this book filled with essential resources and perspectives.
I highly endorse this book. We will be providing the Encore Career Handbook as a "must read" for our students in Encore!Hartford.
