Description:

I consider John Tarnoff to be a peer, colleague, and friend. John specializes in helping those in the 2nd half of life reinvent themselves. In 2017, he published his book, Boomer Reinvention: How to Create Your Dream Career.

Let me read you a snippet from his website.

After my startup went bust, I decided to go back to school to earn a Master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology – a branch of behavioral psychology that focuses on self-responsibility and self-forgiveness as pathways to healing and change. I didn't think that I wanted to become a psychologist but I hoped to learn more about myself, what my strengths and weaknesses were, and what lessons I needed to learn to move forward.

Now, fifteen years later, as a career coach, author, and speaker, my mission is to support professionals over fifty to redefine, build and sustain second-act careers beyond traditional retirement. I’ve created a more personal-growth approach to career development, vs the traditional HR skills-based paradigm - starting with the notion that your ideal second-act career is already inside you.

John and I had a frank discussion on what is going on in the job market for the older worker and what we need to do to get through this. We have done this before and we will yet do it again.

Description:

This week, I have a great interview with Sarah Harford. Sarah is a member of the Career Pivot membership community and was recently hired as a virtual patient trainer for a medical device company. By the way, this is a position in a job that didn't exist before COVID.

She had been employed as an occupational therapist in a psychiatric hospital that left her stressed out and really needed a change. I want you to hear her story about her very convoluted journey during the time of COVID. She had lots of opportunities to just give up and stay as an occupational therapist, but she didn't.

In the end, a bit of serendipity happened. More importantly, she was open to it. She landed a position that did not exist before the pandemic and it married multiple skills from being an occupational therapist and from her previous career as a massage therapist. It's a great story I want you to hear and hopefully be inspired by.
