This holiday season two exceptional new books are hitting the shelves. Both books contain a ton of practical advice and encouragement for those seeking a new career or simply more meaning from their work life.
Equally fun and useful is The Encore Career Handbook by author & columnist Marci Alboher. A year in the making, the research for this work was sponsored by Encore.org, the nation's leading non-profit career resource center for individuals in the second half of life. Called a "comprehensive, nuts-and-bolts guide to finding passion, purpose and a paycheck in the second half of life", this work is likely to become the next-career go-to resource for years to come. Preorder today, and you’ll get access to an exclusive online advice session in early January with author Marci Alboher. Email your receipt by January 1 to firstname.lastname@example.org, and Encore.org will send you details for how to access the online event.
