MANAGEMENT: LEADERSHIP & MOTIVATION. When you're 50 or 60 years old, the job market is a combat zone, no matter what your skills or experience. Battle-scarred veterans report that they're passed over time and again for jobs they are eminently qualified for. Successful applicants, often with fewer skills and almost always with far less experience, do seem to have one significant thing in common: they are younger, sometimes painfully younger.There was a time, not that long ago, when you automatically retired at 60 or 65, presuming you actually lived that long. Today, many seniors are still going strong at 60, 70, even 80 and don't intend to retire. Or they've tried the beach hut or snow cottage and found them boring. Increasingly, many such seniors are choosing new careers, ones that fit their particular strengths. "Finding a Job After 50" is a "guerilla guide" that gives you the powerful tools you need to substitute real satisfaction for the rat race.
