Redundancies, lay-offs, and unemployment figures are everyday news affecting old and young alike. For many, the problem now is how to make a second start in another job or even a new career.
What sort of employment is available in different parts of the country? Can a man or woman over 50 hope for a new career? What chance has a redundant junior executive of getting a similar position? What are the prospects of another job after retirement? What sort of re-training schemes are available? And how are employers helping?
In the studio to answer your questions and near about your own experiences will be Margaret Korving, author of two books on second careers, Out of the Rut and Happy Return, and Jim Davidson of the Training Services Agency.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
