RECAREERING NEWSLETTER LAUNCHED FOR DOWNSIZED MANAGERS/EARLY RETIREES

 RECAREERING NEWSLETTER LAUNCHED FOR DOWNSIZED MANAGERS/EARLY RETIREES
 NORTHBROOK, Ill., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- ReCareering Newsletter, a monthly publication geared to individuals who, by choice or circumstances, are investigating new career paths, is being launched this month by a Chicago-area publications firm.
 "So many of the people we talk to are all but paralyzed in their effort to find viable second careers," says Editor and Publisher Sharon Bobbitt Schuster. "They're blocked by the unsetting experience of leaving a familiar job and a place they've worked for 20 or 30 years, or if they also want to relocate, by the enormous number of options open to them. They don't know where to start."
 The new publication is designed to serve as a stepping-off point and central resource guide for the growing number leaving corporations and other organizations -- as well as urban escapees looking for more satisfying careers in simpler surroundings.
 The first issue, out in November, features a former Bell System manager, now president of a small bank in downstate Illinois, and profiles the tiny community of LaVeta, Colo. In the Southern Rockies along with four of the urban transplants who have "recareered" there. The issue also reviews leading-edge books on the current restructuring massive of the workplace and of careers and reports on a relocation cost-of-living analysis service.
 Upcoming issues will profile Fayetteville, Ark., and St. Genevieve, Mo., and will look at aptitudes and skill testing resources for people over 45, locating and using business brokers, handling an exit package -- and the "upside" of downsizing.
 Schuster, incidentally, is not expecting many renewals.
 "I'm anticipating that if we do our job right, that we'll have a constantly shifting group of subscribers as current readers settle on new careers and/or relocation destinations and newly downsized managers or retirees begin their search.''
 For this reason, bulk subscriptions to ReCareering Newsletter will be available to downsizing corporations, outplacement firms and career and employment counselors, all of whom could use the newsletter as a temporary support vehicle for their different constituencies.
 Individual subscriptions to ReCareering Newsletter are being offered at a charter subscription rate of $39. For subscription information, write ReCareering at 801 Skokie Blvd., Suite 221, Northbrook, Ill.; call 708-498-1981; or fax 708-498-2024.
