New Career After 50: more and more 50 somethings are finding new jobs and new careers. Some moves are forced by the economy, some by burn-out yet many are the result of careful career planning.

I read recently a statement that new careers should be almost a mirror of the old career-because they require little new education and the hiring manager does not have to make a creative or tough decision in making the hire. Some of this is true but if you want to find your passion the creative part is how well you build your career plan and how it dovetails into your financial plan.

To get you started in reading about others who assessed their employment (or lack of employment) situation, built a well thought out career plan, worked the plan, used patience, help from others and moved from a problem career into a job and career where they enjoy going to work every day.

Here’s their stories: go to http://careersafter50.com/ to learn how they did it and you can to.
