Date:5/25/2010

New web site highlights high-growth career fields and educational opportunities for those looking to advance and transition mid-way through their working lives. midPointers urges those at mid-life to take the reins of their careers and have a more fulfilling and rewarding second half.

(PRWEB) May 25, 2010 -- Mid-career professionals have a new resource as they look to transition their careers and lives into something better and have a more rewarding second half.

midPointers, “A Mid-Career Professional and Education Destination,” launched this week to provide advice on jobs in growth fields, on taking charge of your professional and personal life, and of planning for the remainder of your career by giving you the tools you need to succeed.

Whether it’s new careers in such hot fields as green jobs, cyber-security, or international business, midPointers provides advice on transitioning your career into these and other high-growth fields, along with links to educational opportunities that can help you stand out from other job-seekers. All of these educational opportunities are designed for today’s working professionals, which means you can advance your education while you’re still on the job.

Our nation's leaders have placed a premium on education as a way out of our current economic slump, and funding for education has increased as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. "More and more, America's economic preeminence, our ability to outcompete other countries, will be shaped not just in our boardrooms, not just on our factory floors, but in our classrooms, and our schools," President Obama recently told graduates of Hampton University.

“Our national and global economic recovery is dependent on mid-career professionals seeking out opportunities and planning for a more productive and more lucrative second half of their careers,” according to midPointers Founder, Lee Kantz. “This is an ideal time for many who have been laid off, downsized, outsourced, or who are simply growing weary of their current situations, to reinvent themselves and redirect the second half of their careers.

“We can’t wait much longer, our families can’t wait, and our national economy can’t wait,” says Kantz. “This re-education and this personal recovery are central to our nation’s economic recovery.”

midPointers is divided into four main categories: Your Career, Your Education, Your Passion, and Your Life, plus a Degree Directory for finding educational opportunities in your area of interest. Articles help those looking to transition their careers, or step up in their current ones, by providing information on high-growth fields and on specific learning opportunities in those fields.

Articles typically spell out how much certain fields are expecting to grow, based on estimates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In addition to the aforementioned articles, other careers highlighted on midPointers include digital design, instructional technology, and technology management. The “Your Passion” section includes information on career and education opportunities for more personal fulfillment, such as teaching, counseling, and religious programs.

“We aim to be the dominant web site for those at mid-career who are looking for a fresh start through education and career advancement,” says Kantz.

Prior to founding midPointers and its parent company, Edify Marketing, Kantz managed the educational directories business of Monster.com and oversaw marketing for an online division of the University of Illinois. He also served as Director of Product Development for Encyclopaedia Britannica.
