"Itís never too late to reinvent yourself, whether youíre considering another line of work, seeking a promotion at your current job or looking for a more meaningful, less stressful gig on your way to retirement.
Career coaches say boomers and older adults, perhaps more than previous generations, seem willing to switch careers, return to college or seek retraining to boost their job opportunities. The deep recession of 2008-09 and the staggering loss of jobs (some 2 million older workers are still unemployed) also helped to motivate midlife adults to learn new skills in their search for employment.
