Career Development for Vital Agers: Meeting the Challenge.
Laporte, Barbara J.
As older adults seek career management assistance in ever-increasing numbers, career counselors will need to know about issues and job search strategies specific to that population. In order to stay current with the changing times in the career world of older adults, both groups (the older adults themselves and the career counselors) will need resources for education and support. One important resource is the Vital Aging Network, sponsored by the University of Minnesota's College of Continuing Education. This chapter discusses some of the reasons more older adults are seeking professional career management services; explores how to deal with job search issues specific to this population; and provides background and information about the Vital Aging Network and its accompanying Web site.
