Midlife course change

According to Chelsea Klement, AZ Republic, June 24, 2012, many older workers don’t mind a pay cut because they are entering a new field.

Before you try this, think: Are you willing to start over, to train?

Do your research. Do your networking.

You have to be able to really sell yourself—to invite the employer to mentally transfer your old skills to the new requirements.

You may have to relocate.

You need savings to tide you.

You must have realistic expectations.

Hey—you may love it! This is a much better midlife move than that Ferrari.
