Having trouble getting a job as an older worker? Struggling to keep up appearances? Ready for a new direction?
Elizabeth White has some advice for you. In her book, Fifty-Five, Unemployed and Faking Normal, Elizabeth shares her story on how she hit a wall at age 55. As a highly educated professional with years of experience, she couldn’t find meaningful work even though she was applying to dozens of jobs. There were no callbacks.
Elizabeth pretended things were normal for a long time – and then she couldn’t. She wrote her book for the millions of older Americans facing the prospect of downward mobility in old age. In it she shares tools and strategies that boomers can utilize to make peace with changed circumstances, overcome financial hardship and achieve a more inner-directed and satisfying life.
In this session, participants will:
join and network with a safe community of people who are in a similar situation
take action to decrease self-blame and understand how older long-term unemployed individuals are adapting to a new economy
explore the realities and dynamic impact of the changing work environment
discuss how these changes affect an aging market of older workers
