Two Emerging Trends address a surprising phenomenon taking place among those fifty and over who are taking the leap and reinventing themselves for the next phase in their lives—from going back to school to changing careers.
Boomers are leading the pack flocking back to the classroom. Those brave enough to hit the books again when facing retirement will join the growing ranks of nontraditional students over the age of fifty who are preparing for a brand, new future.
In “Headed for the Future: A Boomer’s Guide to Returning to College,” Karen Gorback explores this phenomenon and offers vast information for CSAs and other professionals to support their clients who are contemplating a return to school.
In another interesting turn, more and more older adults intend to put retirement on hold. Not only are they working longer, but they are starting new careers and businesses. Read about this new retirement model in Erika Walker’s “Encore Careers: The New Paradigm of Work for Older Adults.”
