32: Advice for an over-50 career switch
Show Notes

Some of the most listened to episodes of Career Switch Podcast are those that feature guests who’ve switched industries or professions after age 50. So, I decided to dedicate an entire episode to making a career switch when you’re over 50. 

I speak with Penny Kastaris, executive coach and senior consultant with Right Management Talent Solutions, a company that offers career transition services. Penny is a young Boomer, who helps over-50 clients—both those who know what they want to do next and those who are lost—with their career change. In this episode, she addresses the most frequent concerns she hears from her clients and offers her best advice for making an over-50 career switch.
