    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    (San Francisco, CA)—Life expectancy has increased by more than 30 years since Social Security was created, while job security, employee-sponsored retirement plans, 401ks, and Social Security have either diminished or are not sufficient to meet the needs and longer life spans of working professionals. Author Reynold Lewke addresses the unique career, life, health, and financial needs of the 50-plus demographic in his book, Hired for Youth, Fired for Age, Taking Charge of Your Career at 50+, which will be released on December 8, 2015.

    Lewke based his book on 40 years’ experience in executive search, engineering, legal practice, and business, which revealed that employees over the age of 50 are increasingly frustrated in their jobs, unexpectedly unemployed, unprepared for retirement, and/or lacking a career-life plan for the next 30 years. The book addresses critical areas of life, including career changes and job searches for the middle-aged demographic, medical and financial preparation for retirement, health, relationships, and faith.

    “The impetus to write this book has been borne out of seeing how poor job market knowledge has caused literally thousands of competent people to become frustrated in their professional lives, particularly after age 50. They often ultimately settle for something that does not really fit what they are capable of personally and professionally, nor does it correspond to what they would really like to do for themselves, their families, and society as a whole,” Lewke explained. “The microeconomic result is great people who are under employed, under compensated, and not happy at work. The macroeconomic result is that immense amounts of highly qualified human capital are grossly wasted on a global basis.”

    Hired for Youth, Fired for Age also explains the real reason individuals aged 50 and above suddenly find themselves displaced in the workforce, while providing insight into the unique challenges such career changes create in individuals’ personal and professional lives. By providing resources, tools, and a career-life plan guide that addresses skills, interests, relationships, families, and medical and financial issues, Lewke enables readers to take control of their professional and personal lives.

    Hired for Youth, Fired for Age can be purchased at HiredonCompetence.com. To learn more about the book or its author, please visit www.reynoldlewke.com.
