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!
