Boomers Hip-Deep in the Job Market

According to this release by Gary Pettis, Boomers who either must or want to continue working after so-called retirement age will need to be creative in carving out new roles. And it may not necessarily be Gen-X we're competing against, since GenX represents only 17% of the population. We're more likely to be competing against each other--with similar breadth and depth of experience.

Don't despair though--we've reinvented ourselves before and by gum, we can do it again. Says Pettis, "Soon, Baby Boomers will most likely discover that their competitors are fellow Baby Boomers and will be competing against them... In a society where many individuals share the same backgrounds, skills, abilities and trail of job descriptions, it is going to be the individuals that know how to position and market themselves and explain their unique set of skills and experiences to employers or customers that will gain the advantage."
