I am doing it at 56. It can be done!


Research the area you wish to move into. Make connections with people that work in that industry and make a leap of faith. TikTok has great tips on resumes and job searches. I relaunched at career at 50. I did Professional Development and sales.


I have 25 yrs management in retail and medical sector.. just really want to change to something different I’m burnt out no desire anymore …


I’m leaving 25 yrs in medical field for same reason


Get the dates off of your resume. Highlight the applicable skills at the top of your resume. You’ll never be younger, go for it!


Maybe just fill in the gap with the truth? We shouldn’t be punished for raising our children .

I have applied to some… no luck on responses which is discouraging for sure.. anyone have any suggestions?

Why not start your own firm? 25 years seems like a rich background to offer consultancy services.

I think you just go for it. You deserve to do what you love. I say take the leap.

Hey Kearney 🐠, I need an honest opinion about the energy practice at Kearney, i.e. what type of clients and projects? Is it mostly O&G or is there also some energy transition stuff happening (Renewables, Hydrogen, Grid, Energy Storage, CCUS etc.) I am considering joining, but don’t want to work for oil & gas projects.
