Too Old to Find Good Work, Too Young to Retire
SAN FRANCISCO, CA — San Francisco Public Library is proud to host eminent Bay Area career expert Dr. Marty Nemko, as he tackles one of the work world’s biggest challenges: job seekers who are over 50. As countless people over 50 have a hard time finding remunerative work, Marty offers ways to put the best face on being older and solid arguments why older may be better. Marty will also present not-obvious and not-painful ways to cut living expenses and ways to live more richly than one might imagine.
Marty will be conducting “workovers” on volunteers from the audience, much like in his beloved radio show. Audience members will come away with practical plans they can feel confident about. Marty will also perform songs, short-short stories and bring a surprise special guest.
Marty Nemko is in his 28th year hosting Work with Marty Nemko on KALW 91.7 FM and was a career columnist for The Chronicle before going national, where he’s written more than 1,000 articles for TIME, The Atlantic, and PsychologyToday.com. Marty is a career and personal coach specializing in older adults and was called by U.S. News, a “Career coach extraordinaire.” He holds a Ph.D. in educational psychology from U.C. Berkeley and is the author of eight books.
