Popular author and career futurist Kerry Hannon says the workplace has changed forever, and for older workers that brings some good news. In this episode, she talks about her new book, In Control at 50+, which offers insights about the current job market as well as tips on how people over 50 can navigate their careers. Her advice includes taking stock of what’s important to you, looking at a wide range of job options, and being willing to redeploy your skills. Kerry urges you to embrace technology, even if you don’t want to, and acknowledges she is still working on that. And she describes new mechanisms to help people reenter the job market after time away, like “returnships” and state programs to connect employers with experienced workers.
