How Baby Boomers Might Help In Several Industries The current trend for more mature, certified workers starting their second career is growing in frequency in three key categories: the teaching profession, within the health care industry and in consulting. Significant numbers of baby boomers look to reinvent themselves before retirement and discover positions that are socially meaningful. Since healthier living is tantamount to modern life, the average life span for boomers is increasing. Retirement living is also growing by a number of years. Quickly becoming a viable option to supplement retirement income and to give back to the community is with these secondary careers. A Teaching Position Countless businesses and community colleges seek out professionals with significant experience in the field to educate their classes. Seniors and retired people make excellent candidates for teaching positions, tutors and mentors since they have a wealth of personal and professional experience and training. Plus, teaching will provide a gratifying career in which you will offer a positive impact on a number of students. Health Care and Social Work Social and health care assistance positions are rapidly expanding career sectors in the United States. Consequently, seniors are valued workers in the health care field as a result of their experience in dealing with a large number of different types of people and in handling and circumventing crises. In fact, roughly 50% of all seniors who are employed are working in the health care industry. It is an immensely worthwhile and satisfying career using an abundance of face-to-face interaction and personal, immediate care. The Consulting And Career Coaching Industries In an exceedingly valuable way, seniors have grown to be entrepreneurs so they can continue to use their skills and knowledge. Some companies will rehire personnel who've retired as part-time independent contractors, generally resuming the exact responsibilities in the same division or department where they worked before retiring. Taking everything into consideration, when you've got a genuine knowledge and aptitude in a specific area in which consulting needs are high, such as business management, marketing, information technology, or accounting and finance, being an independent contractor will be a great possibility for your second career. Plus, your degree of success as an executive provides you with different chances to offer your services as an executive coach. Along those same lines, a great resume that's been built over a long career will help you sell your services as an independent contractor or to get the training from popular coaching services. An excellent and rewarding second career for seniors or retirees is career coaching and consulting, when they have a good background, the skills and expertise in human resources or even executive recruiting.
