With the goal of finding encore opportunities for adults over 50, Discovering What's Next is hosting an Encore Town Hall at Lasell College on Tuesday, April 9, 7:00 p.m., according to a press release.
With aging boomers in mind, Encore is work, paid or unpaid, that is personally satisfying, recycles skills and expertise, and gives back to the community.
Marci Alboher, former New York Times careers columnist and current vice president of encore.org, is the author of The Encore Career Handbook and will be speaking about her book.
From Encore.org, the leading organization in the field, comes a road map to every step of the encore career journey — how to plan the transition; how much you need to make; the pros and cons of going back to school; when to volunteer and when to intern; how to network effectively and harness the power of social media; who’s hiring and for what jobs.
A panel of local adults who have found their encore will be part of the event. Resource tables from various community organizations with information regarding each of these organizations and the opportunities they have for our population will be stationed around the room.
