This is a practical guide to help midlife and older adults evaluate their present status and explore life options. By means of a specific, step-by-step easily read style, individuals are guided in evaluating their assets and present status, exploring alternatives, setting goals and implementing specific job search, business, volunteer or other retirement strategies. Organised in two parts, the book is an excellent guide to help men and women at midlife and beyond break free of the stereotypes of learning, work, retirement and ageing. In Part I (Goal Exploration), readers are guided in evaluating their assets and present status including health, finances, past achievements, interests and skills; and in exploring alternatives and setting goals. Background and evolving re-definitions of the retirement tradition are explained. In Part II (Employment Strategies), readers are given specific instructional strategies for implementing their goal whether it is job search, self-employment, further training, volunteer work or other meaningful activity. Forms and tips are provided for writing a resume, cover letter, telephoning for an interview, and practising sample interview questions if applying for a paid or volunteer job. The reader will also find background information for starting a business and how to become successfully self-employed.(Sample Cover Letter) 2327 Hill Street Great Plains, Kansas 12345 March 21, 2001 Mr. Robert Smith, Sales Manager Heartland Division Danby ...
