Free Webinar – Redirection Project: Career Development and Job Shifts for the 50+
CERIC will be offering a free webinar, Redirection Project: Career Development and Job Shifts for the 50+ on Thursday, January 12, 2017 (12:00 pm – 1:00 pm ET). A national CERIC-funded research initiative, Dr Suzanne Cook led the Redirection Project and will present her findings on later life career development among adults age 50 and older who shifted into second or third careers, as well as the experiences of career practitioners working with older adults.
Join us to learn:
- What research tells us about the trend towards delayed retirement and the expansion of working lives
- The diversity of paid work undertaken by those 50+ and their later life career needs
- Best practices for working with older adults on employment and career development issues
Dr Cook is a social gerontologist and Adjunct Professor at York University in the Department of Sociology and York’s Centre for Aging Research and Education. Her research bridges theory, research and practice.
