Retirement today: For many, even former corporate professionals, it’s not happening

Retirement today: For many, even former corporate professionals, it’s not happening | Resourceful resilience in ageless careers | Scoop.it
More seniors who spent careers as corporate professionals are competing for low-wage jobs.
John Fruner, DBA's insight:

The man interviewed for this article made some wise comments about the kind of resilience required to become and remain reemployed in later years. The huge group of boomers in the generation following his would do well to read his story and avoid the temptation to dismiss it as something that couldn't happen to them. In fact, when I interviewed 10 Michigan boomers from age 50 to 66 earlier this year who had been unemployed and ultimately became reemployed, parts of their stories were remarkably similar. It's critical to accurately assess our financial situation and to be willing to do whatever we can to avoid outliving our financial resources. As this story shows, maintaining one's health and a positive mindset are two important prerequisites necessary to make income-sustaining options possible in later life.

John Fruner, DBA's insight:

So many of us have heard how important networking is, but few understand what a great one looks like and how to build it. The author has made an important contribution here by creating a useful framework of six characteristics that define what make professional networks effective, along with the seventh question, addressing an essential network-building behavior. The principles embodied in these seven questions will help more people build the kinds of professional networks that will be most effective in supporting their occupational interests and needs.
