US baby boomers want jobs satisfaction

Nearly 6 in 10 of US baby boomers (those born between 1946, and 1964) who intend to work after retirement say that they want a job that gives them a greater sense of purpose, according to a 2005 MetLife Foundation/Civic Ventures New Face of Work Survey. Randall Hansen, a career advice writer for the website Quintessential Careers, comments that although baby boomers were the first generation to have a lot more career freedom, they fell into a job that they kind of hated of didn’t get as much satisfaction from. However, they stayed anyway because of commitments such as mortgages and their kinds’ college tuition expenses. However, they now see a prolonged career as a way to explore new interests or test untried talents.
