Baby-Boomer Transitions: Part II

This just in from the recent Newsweek cover story on Boomers.

According to the Merrill Lynch New Retirement Survey, 81% of boomers expect to keep working past 65, but their professional goals will shift.

Says Ken Dychtwald, president of Age Wave:

"You have corporate CEOs who want to be schoolteachers, and marketing managers who'd really rather run a coffee shop, bookkeepers who want to join the Peace Corps. They'll work fewer hours or only eight months a year, and they won't be as concerned about having the biggest office or the most lucrative job. It will be more important to do something they enjoy."
