Guide to Boomer Job Search

By Susan P. Joyce

If you were born in the United States between 1946 and 1964 - the surge in new births after the end of World War II - you are officially a member of the "Baby Boomer" generation, also known as a "Boomer."

In the 21st century, Boomers, who now range in age between their late 40's and mid 60's, are handling a tough job market and a tough economy with their usual Boomer can-do attitude.

This Guide is comprised of the articles and resources you see in the column on the right, ranging from Laid Off! Now What? and How to Address the "Overqualified" Concern to Figuring Out What's Next, Developing Your Success Plan, and Beating Boomer Stereotypes. And MORE!

For some interesting options for Boomers (and others) looking for their "second act" careers, check out author Nancy Collamer's Lifestyle-Friendly Careers articles here on and author Jan Cannon's Mid-Life Careers.

And if you are interested in breaking out of the standard 9 to 5 job, read Julie Walraven's articles in the Guide to Freelance and Independent Contractor Jobs.
