In conversation with Andrea Coombes
Nine million baby boomers have already decided to choose alternatives to the traditional retirement model, to enjoy meaningful work in their “encore careers.” Another 31 million are interested in making the leap. From Marci Alboher, vice president of Encore.org, comes The Encore Career Handbook ($15.95), a road map to finding passion, purpose, and a paycheck in the second half of life.
Marci Alboher is a former New York Times career columnist and currently serves as the vice president of Encore.org
