Synopsis

BOOMER MEN WORKING: Strategies for Staying Employed (or Tackling Unemployment) is a how-to book for Boomer Generation men who want to hang on to their present job or find a new one. It's a man's book because men need more help on the employment scene than their women contemporaries do (and can learn some lessons from the ladies). The job scene has changed enormously since Baby Boomers-born 1946 to 1964-first went to work. Today, older guys find work by going back to school, learning how to use social media, refreshing their team skills, and writing a resume that can run the gauntlet of software that guards every HR department. BOOMER MEN WORKING offers hope through the stories of older guys who have lost a job or retired sooner than planned, figured out what they needed to do next, and found new employment. BOOMER MEN WORKING provides an employment plan in practical steps geared to the needs of men in their late-40s to mid-60s: raising your value to your present employer, raising your profile on the team, using layoff time productively, looking good and working well with younger generations.
