Interns Over 40

Interns Over 40: What we do. Now that you’ve got two or three or more decades of work experience, you probably have some pretty well-developed skills. But being a skilled worker doesn’t necessarily mean you have a fulfilling career or that you know how to present you skills appropriately in today's world of online social media job hunting with Linked-In, Facebook and a slew of career-related sites. The career you started in your 20s may not suit you or the job market today. Perhaps more importantly, what will the future need? People change careers for many reasons: to pursue their passions, make better use of their skills, seek out new challenges, or in response to layoffs and negative business conditions. The days of lifetime jobs have been a thing of the past for some time. Workers aged 18 to 38 change jobs an average of 6 times. And this phenomenon is creeping up to people in their 40s, 50s, and 60s. On top of that, we’re living and working longer than ever, so we can expect decades of job and career changes ahead. Internships have traditionally given students the opportunity to test out new careers and gain some experience. But internships aren’t just for students any more. Mid-career interns include skilled workers who are unemployed, underemployed, those who are returning to work after extended absences, semi retired, languishing in contracting or a failing industrie, bored, or just ready for change or new adventures. Interns Over 40 is a re-careering business that inspires and equips its members with tools to evaluate career skills and preferences, and to find and start new careers. A focused network of employers, career advisers, and educational tools are available to help mid-career workers transition to new a new field. This is a transition that, for many, has a monumental effect on their careers, incomes, and mental and physical well being. The loss of a job whether by choice or by necessity, causes many to lose their sense of purpose.
