Redirection – Movers, Shakers and Shifters

 

This documentary film examines career shift, transition and occupational change in later life. As life expectancy increases, many people are interested in an extension of working life. Job change can occur at any age. People redirect for various reasons. This film shares the stories of five people who have changed occupation at age 50 or older.

In the future, redirection is expected to increase in our society as more people transition into new occupations.

The documentary Redirection: Movers, Shakers and Shifters is one component of the national CERIC-funded Redirection: Work and Career Development initiative, also known as the Redirection Project.
