A new Kapiʻolani Community College course is designed to help retiring baby boomers figure out what to do with the rest of their lives.

Called Encore Career Change and Life Transition for Boomers, the four-session program covers skills and interests inventory, skill statement and resume writing, networking and internet job searches and developing a life change philosophy.

It is designed for retirees seeking personal fulfillment, social impact and continued income in encore careers.

The course is sponsored by Kapiʻolani’s Kupuna Education Center, a state-funded initiative to promote active aging and provide training for family caregivers and workers in aging-related careers. The second series begins in June 2010; call (808) 734-9108 or check the website.
