Book Description

If you’re a Baby Boomer, is it too late to change careers? Many Baby Boomers either can’t retire or don’t want to, but they want a change. Maybe a career they’ve always dreamed of or just something more fulfilling. Repurpose Your Career: A Practical Guide for Baby Boomers shows that change is possible.
It requires a strategy and a series of practical steps including:

  • Study yourself to understand your core needs in a way you probably never did with your first career. Like what kinds of rewards do you prefer? What kind of boss do you work best with? How much physical activity do you need? How do you like to make decisions? What are your needs not only for money but for time and freedom?
  • Strategically network with people in the field you’re interested in to find out what the job is really like.
  • Develop a statement about what kind of job you’re looking that covers all your core needs.
  • Build a tribe of people who can help you make your transition, including introducing you to others connected in the field.
  • Work on your skill set including using LinkedIn and other social media effectively.
  • Negotiate for what you want, beginning with items that have more to do with your quality of life than money.

Repurpose Your Career not only gives practical, step-by-step advice for how to make a successful transition, but deals with the challenging issues of having to ask for help from others and having to become the novice again after years of working to become an expert.

If you’re looking to find a career that meets your needs and you can grow into for the next 20 years, this book is the road map you’re looking for.Amazon_Buy_Button1

In 2011, Jason Abla, of JibberJobber fame, came to Launch Pad Job Club to do a presentation and Jason said to everyone write an e-book! It is instant credibility. I know a lot of people in the audience went yeah right. I was planning on self publishing at the time but thought it would be very difficult and procrastinated. Well,  I have to admit …. he was right.

I have been blogging about the book for several months. I believe that multiple opportunities have arisen just because I told people I had a book in the works. I will be blogging in the coming months on self publishing the opportunities it creates for a career pivot. If a recovering engineer like myself can self publish a book, you can too.
