Some thoughts on second careers from an article (linked below) on the AARP website.
"… one study shows that 40 percent of people working at age 62 had changed careers since they turned 55"
An interesting observation from reading the examples given in the article, of some people's later-in-life career changes, is how different their new jobs were from their previous ones. For example, going from organizational trainer to dog walker, from police officer to air rescue, from newspaper publisher to sailboat captain, or even Lutheran minister to innkeeper. (Just some of the examples given).
Obviously, it's likely some or most of these people profiled were fulfilling a probably life-long held desire to pursue those second careers, and now having the chance to do so, were likely happy they were doing so.
Not sure how many of us here want or need to know about
such new career opportunities later in our lives, but an interesting read: /www.aarp.org/work/career-change/info-2018/great-second-careers.html?intcmp=AE-WOR-CCH-EOA1
(BTW, if you actually do have your own ideas, or even plans, to move into a later-on second career like the folks in the article, feel free to post below about
it, and tell us why you would like to do so).
In particular, if you would like to share how you think dealing with the PCa experience has impacted your future career/employment prospects, that could be especially helpful to others.
