Ready to Re-Enter the Workforce? Find The Work You Love

Samuel Greengard, a dad and a terrific journalist, has written a hot new book that you'll want to check out if you're a parent thinking about re-entering the workforce after full-time parenting. (It's also a good pick if you're considering changing careers and you want to explore all your options.)

The AARP Crash Course in Finding the Work You Love takes a look at the growing social phenomenon known as "recareering." You'll learn how to beef up your education or seek out retraining, how to find balance in your new life (what a concept for parents, huh?) and how to choose a new career you'll truly enjoy.

By the way, don't let the "AARP" part of the title scare you off. Even if you're a long way from age 50, you'll find lots of great tips, practical resources and motivation here. The Boomers don't get to have all the fun with this terrific book. 

Greengard also has a website, Recareering-Guide.com, that features even more helpful tips and discussions. Check it out.

Thanks for posting these resources, Kathy! More than ever people are entering new careers, whether it's to get out of a stagnant one, or because the economy is forcing their hand. But in any case, it can be done at any age and no matter how long one's been out of the workforce.

Dawn, thanks for the encouraging words. I think people are less worried about trying new things, no matter their age, these days. A good thing.
