Consulting careers abound for baby boomers

Selena Dehne, JIST Publishing

INDIANAPOLIS, IN -- The demand for consultants is growing rapidly in the work force as companies capitalize on the opportunity to hire expert opinions on an "as-needed" basis, rather than as full-time employees. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 55% increase in the number of consulting opportunities between 2002 and 2012.

"Companies now hire consultants to avoid the costs associated with full-time, permanent employees. They hire the staff they need just when they need them-and when those people are no longer needed, they're gone," say career coaches Wendy Enelow and Louise Kursmark, authors of Expert Resumes for Baby Boomers. Companies' need for experienced, knowledgeable advisors offers baby boomers one of the best opportunities to have a flexible work schedule that allows them to make the most of their work history and skills.
