Wanted Gerontology Workers, Gerontological Specialists, and
Gerontologists for careers now and into the future.
As our population of persons aged 65 and over grows and lives
longer through these ages, the need for more practitioners with
gerontology-specific training is growing as well. Opportunities for
careers in gerontology are everywhere and more are appearing every
day, however the increasing number of options in this field makes
the task of finding information, mentoring, and jobs more
difficult. How do you know if gerontology is right for you and what
options for practice are available?
"101 Careers in Gerontology" will guide you in your search,
providing glimpses into and information about a broad range of
options that are gerontology-specific or gerontology-related.
This guide is for all levels of job seekers-college or high
school students looking to begin careers or paths of study,
professionals needing credentials, mid-career job seekers, even
guidance counselors or parents looking for help counseling young
adults. Types of jobs and where you would work-including areas you
may not have considered such as clothing design, anthropology, or
law-education requirements for those jobs, practitioner profiles,
and emerging job prospects are all outlined to give you the
information you need to decide which path in gerontology is right
for you. Interviews with practitioners provide insight on what it's
like to be starting out in gerontology or to have worked in the
field for years, as well as the experience of starting out with a
degree versus on-the-job learning.
So go ahead, use this book and tweak your interest, spur your
imagination, or identify a broader spectrum of career possibilities
that might be a good fit for you. Welcome to the exciting, dynamic,
and ever-expanding professional world of Gerontology
