SEC 3 - Transferable Skills

Mature job seekers have worked for years. They have built skills and honed those skills over many years of experience. And what's most important is that as part of their marketability in looking at the next job. An employer wants to know that you can do the job they have available. They want to know what those skills are and can you do the job from day one.

In this episode of The Encore Career Podcast, presented by Employment For Seniors, we explore the importance of transferable skills. A blog post for this podcast is available here.

The Successful Encore Career - Welcome!

Welcome to our initial podcast!

 

A funny thing happened to baby boomers on the way to retirement: Many realized they couldn't afford, or didn't want, to retire. Whether it's for financial reasons or a chance to try something new, more baby boomers are embarking on an encore career—a second professional act that can bring in not only money but often the fulfillment that may have been lacking the first time around the career bend.
