Women and Encore Careers. It is Possible!

Women, who succeed in creating encore careers, become accomplished at managing their career aspirations. With every job along the way, they learn and grow professionally while cultivating a portfolio of transitional skills that is rebranded towards future career possibilities.

An “encore career,” also called “re-careering,” can be defined as an employment transition made during the latter part of one’s career, usually to the social sector or public-interest field, such as education, health care, social services or nonprofits. While this lifestyle change is primarily among those of us between the ages of 44 and 70, it is not necessarily the rule.

Many persons, regardless of age, are now conducting reality checks. Not only do they research the market for in-demand career opportunities, but they take the time to assess their interests and work values. This crucial self-awareness strategy helps them create an enhanced work-life balance and ultimately a greater sense of purpose. So regardless of age, there is no more excuse to do or not do something!

Amazon Says: College does not teach you how to be successful in the working world. There is no course or textbook that explains how to create the fulfilling careers many aspire to. The Millennial generation is 80 million members strong and each year more than 1.5 million enter the working world with little to no idea of how to succeed. While companies spend millions of dollars scrambling to learn more about Millennials and adapt their work cultures to fit this generation, there are remarkably few resources dedicated to teaching young professionals the traits and techniques that will help them succeed in an ever-changing and always-challenging corporate environment. The Young Professional's Guide to the Working World fills this void, offering relevant advice to young professionals seeking to build a strong career foundation. A fellow Millennial, McDaniel draws on personal experiences from the beginning of his own career to illustrate key lessons. The Young Professional's Guide to the Working World provides important insights on the topics essential to success within the first 5-10 years of any corporate career, including: How to get promoted faster and drive results not matter what your industry or job title The 25 attributes all successful young professionals possess How to avoid being a DOPE (someone who Disses Opportunity, Potential & Earnings) The keys to becoming a STAR in your career (someone who is Savvy, Tenacious, Adaptive & Resourceful) How to create and implement a career blueprint plan, the right way Leveraging mentoring to ensure career success less...
