Summary
  • Whether you've toiled in the trenches of bureaucracy or blazed an entrepreneurial trail, heeding the urge to change careers can fulfill a passion you've always harbored-but never acted upon
  • It could be a bumpy journey, though, filled with uncertainty and risk. As the veteran of two career makeovers himself, author Samuel Greengard knows what's required to get you there from here. In the AARP Crash Course in Finding the Work You Love, he details how to: discover your "recareering style" (Are you a Change Agent or a Fantasy Seeker?), find a career counselor who can help you clear obstacles from your path, return to school to top off your education and update your computer skills, estimate your career-change costs, harness job-search and networking tools newly available online, write a blog to attract recruiters, seed your resume with keywords to land more interviews, explore alternative work options such as flextime, telework, and job sharing, take a "power sabbatical" to find your life's purpose
  • In-depth profiles of those who have engineered a career switch of their own are rounded out by more practical tips, worksheets, how-to sidebars, key questions, and resource boxes overflowing with helpful books, reports, and websites
  • After successful early careers as a restaurant manager and a telecom-industry executive, Samuel Greengard reinvented himself as a freelance writer, covering career, business, family, and health issues for AARP The Magazine, The Chicago Tribune, Family Circle, The Los Angeles Times, and Wired. A past president of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, Greengard is currently an instructor in the UCLA Writer's Program. He lives in Portland, Oregon
