Encore Careers

Encore Career Handbook
Nine million people ages 44 to 70 have embarked on careers that are personally meaningful and benefit society.

Another 31 million are interested in finding their own encores — second acts for the greater good.

Here’s a place to start: The Encore Career Handbook is a comprehensive, nuts-and-bolts guide to finding passion, purpose and a paycheck in the second half of life.

In it, you’ll find information about how to plan the transition. How much you need to make. The pros and cons of going back to school. When to volunteer, and when to intern. How to network effectively and harness the power of social media. Who’s hiring and for what jobs? An Encore Hot List of 35 viable careers.

You’ll also learn how encore careers have the power to improve the world for future generations. To learn more about the encore movement and get involved, visit Encore.org.

Below the ordering info is a line that says “Connect with the encore movement.” Can you cut the sentence and just say “Stay connected with Encore.org and the encore movement.”

Praise for the Encore Career Handbook

“If enough of us find our encores, we’ll become a small army for change: We’ll transform the world and ourselves.”
Jane Pauley, host of AARP’s Your Life Calling on NBC’s Today show

“More and more people – sometimes by necessity, but increasingly by choice – are forgoing traditional retirement and inventing a new stage of life and work. Marci Alboher has written the ultimate guidebook to the financial, educational and even physical adjustments required to create and take full advantage of these opportunities. The Encore Career Handbook is essential reading for the rest of your life.”
Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

“A treasure trove for anyone hitting midlife and wondering what’s next. Engaging, practical. … This book will inspire you to think big and take action!”
Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project
