Retirees are part of that talent pool. Longer life expectancy combined with retireesâ€™ experience, skills and drive provides the perfect opportunity for encore careers to flourish.The interest is high. A survey by the MetLife Foundation and Encore.org. found half of those 44 to 70 years old want encore careers. Additionally, 9 million Americans in that same age group currently are in an encore career, with 31 million expressing interest in pursuing one.
