Q: I’m 54, and I’ve worked here as an auditor for 24 years. Until recently, I was kept busy. But I haven’t received any new assignments lately. For the last month, I’ve been mostly idle. Maybe my bosses plan to offer me early retirement. What should I do?
A: If you want to retire, then just keep doing what you’re doing— nothing. But if you want to keep working, prove your worth. Propose projects you can do that will improve the bottom line. Train newcomers in your areas of expertise. Take the initiative to show how your job can change to meet the firm’s changing needs.
