    Once, few US citizens older than 65 remained in the workplace, but today, the majority of American men and women are healthy and active well past that age, and many need to work. Writer Allyn I. Freeman and financial planner Robert E. Gorman, both in their 60s, offer practical advice, tactics, tips and resources based on their experiences finding new work. getAbstract recommends this life manual to retired seniors seeking to rejoin the workforce and to those under 60 who should plan ahead. HR outsourcers will appreciate the work-search resources.
