Mature Workers

CareerSource NEFL understands that coming into the job market today is much different from your early job search experience. For one thing, you've got a history.

You've also ​acquired specialized skills and credentials. You've developed a new perspective on what makes a job great. And you might not be working for the same reasons you were when you were ​young or even for the same reasons from a few years ago.

We understand that you've got a lot on your mind. Money matters, but so does making a difference, having time to do the things you want and figuring out what you want to do after you retire.

In short, your path, your methods, and your outcomes may be different than the younger workers you’re competing against for jobs.We get that, and we're here to help you find the resources designed just for you.

Career Change after 50?

While younger workers may be quick to make a change, workers over the age of 50 may feel that the only choice they have is to “stick it out” until retirement. A common misconception exists that after a certain age it’s “too late” to make a career change. Quite the opposite is true, however. With the average age of retirement rising, many people over 50 may have 15, 20, or even 30 years of working life left in them, and some choose to spend the remainder of their working years in a new career. has information and tips for older workers considering a change.
