Boomers in transition:
Are you caught in the never ending treadmill of a non-focused, uninspired, and unsuccessful job search?

How would you like to change ineffective way of doing things and refocus and re-energize your efforts to create the future you have always dreamed of?

Boomers have special needs and challenges when navigating the new world of job-search. Especially challenging is overcoming the shock and dismay that a resume boasting superb accomplishment and production is no longer enough to land the next position. The seemingly endless cycle of applying to employment opportunities on job boards only to receive absolutely no response is frustrating and scary. Given the daunting odds of finding employment repeated all day on the news, it’s easy to understand why some just give up.

The average job search today is 30 weeks. For those over 50,
the average is 37 weeks.

Imagine the feeling of possessing the kinds of tools and information that will electrify your job search, your confidence, and your future. This is a feeling enjoyed by those who recognize that the old methodologies no longer work, but that by employing a new tool set, and a new way of conducting business, previous barriers and limits are removed and replaced with a clarity of direction and purpose.

How ironic that of all the wonderful skills you mastered as you build and managed your professional life, that the skills we didn’t pay much attention to, were those related to conducting a powerful and effective job search. After all, who wanted to become expert in an area we hoped to never need? Well, life rarely provides a direct path from a complete and fulfilling work life to a comfortable retirement. When a different reality surfaces, we realize that we are in fact, unprepared and unskilled in this part of the landscape.

Many in the Boomer generation will need to finance a retirement that could actually be longer than their working life.
–Ken Dychtwald, Author of Age Wave

Sometimes, we need to take a step back so that we can move forward. For those of you who find yourself in transition, its okay to take a deep breath and say, “wow, the world has really changed since the last time I looked for a new position. In the old days, I would just circulate my resume and field the phone calls. It doesn’t seem to work that way anymore. I could use some help.”

Boomer Strategies helps people to figure out who they are, where they want to go and how to get there. We provide the tools, information and branding to energize and empower them to embrace their next endeavor.

I had never worked with a coach before and I wasn’t completely comfortable with the prospect of doing so.

But I realized that my search was going nowhere and that I needed help. Stu helped me to navigate a system I had become wholly unfamiliar with, from working with me to figure out what I wanted to do, to building my own unique brand I could effectively market to prospective employers.

It’s all actually quite cool.
