Utah Issues Career Guide for Older Workers

Utah's Department of Workforce Services has published a career guide for older worker. Designed to meet the special needs of older workers, Workers Over 50 is a supplement to the main adult career guide from DWS, Utah Careers, and includes articles covering topics such as "Myths about older workers," "Staying current in skills and knowledge," and "Finding employment after age 50."
"As the baby boomers approach retirement age, some are choosing to retire at 65 or even earlier. Many others will continue to work long after they could retire. Some will retire, then decide, for a variety of reasons, to go back into the workforce," says Lecia Langston, contributing author of Workers Over 50. "There are many factors to consider for whatever path is chosen. This publication is meant to help with these decisions and with other issues and questions workers over 50 grapple with."
