Building a Successful Second Career near Retirement

According to the Employee Benefit Research Institute, about 65 percent of workers say they plan to work for pay after they retire. The trick is finding work that keeps them passionate. Nanci Hellmich writes for USA Today with some tips for pinpointing a worthwhile second career. First, research what other people around your age are doing online. Have a mental picture of what you might like to do and jot down your goals. Take things slow, maybe spending a couple years to really decide what to do, so you do not invest heavily in an idea that does not pan out. Be practical and realize you may need to explore further education to develop the skills required for a second career. Do not be delusional enough to lock in the salary you require in your head either. You can make this second career really fulfilling, but only if you treat it with the seriousness with which you approached your first career.
