Redirection Project

webinar description

Dr Suzanne Cook will be presenting findings from the recently completed Redirection Project. This project examines later life career development among adults age 50 and older who shifted into second or third careers, or who were seeking new employment. The study also examined the experiences of career practitioners working with older adults in order to identify approaches that can assist and support older workers.

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • 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
