Time to discuss changing careers

Join Powell River author Linda Wegner as she discusses her book 3D Success: Changing Careers in Mid Life this Thursday

Join Powell River author Linda Wegner as she discusses her book 3D Success: Changing Careers in Mid Life this Thursday at 6:30 p.m.

If you’re between the ages of 45 and 64 and you’ve got a well padded resume, it only seems logical that a new employer will see you as the answer to his or her employee prayers. After all, your acquired wisdom, work experience, skills and abilities are

valuable; you’re also probably highly motivated because you’ve got reasons why you’re looking for a new career.

Known by the term “middle age unemployment bulge” your reason(s) for changing careers may include:

• You’ve been laid off because of corporate or company downsizing.

• You’ve gone as far as you can or want in your current work.

• You’re dealing with health issues or physical limitations.

• You’ve decided it’s time to follow a personal or employment “dream.”

• You want to create a work schedule that allows for a “life for yourself.”

• You’re planning or nearing retirement and your finances need some help.

Whatever the reason, encouragement in the process of moving forward can be found in Linda’s story.
