Make a Living and Make a Difference With `The Encore Career Handbook'

As 2012 winds down, think about what you want 2013 to look like. Make a New Year’s resolution that can enrich your life and help others.

If you’re among the 31 million people who are thinking about an encore career – a second act for the greater good – the new year brings a new guide for getting there. The Encore Career Handbook, which The Associated Press called an “invaluable resource,” can help you find an encore that best suits you. Thinking of going back to school? Wondering about how to network? Want to know who’s hiring? The Encore Career Handbook, which debuts December 18, can show you the way.

And if you’re among the 9 million people already in an encore career, consider giving a copy of the book to someone who could use a fresh approach to working in the second half of life.

As a bonus – order now and you’ll get access to an exclusive online advice session with author Marci Alboher of Encore.org in early January. Alboher, a former New York Times career columnist, will take your questions via email at ECH@encore.org, and on Facebook and Twitter. She'll answer the most popular ones.

By January 1, please email your receipt to encore@workman.com. We will send you instructions for how to access the online event. If you can’t attend, we will let you know how to listen to a recording.

So start off the new year with a gift for yourself (or a friend) – a road map to an encore career.
