Early career disappointment and wellbeing in old age

18 septiembre 2015

Men who fail to reach their early career goals can experience a reduced sense of wellbeing much later in life, experts report. Study results revealed that men who had held a greater number of jobs (an indicator of career instability) between leaving school at age 15 and age 27 were less likely to feel their lives were manageable in old age. Upward social mobility was associated with the feeling in older age that life was comprehensible.
