Second Act: The IRS

Baby Boomer accountants looking for more balance in their lives are considering positions with government agencies, including the IRS. The nonprofit Partnership for Public Service is working to recruit older Americans into public service with programs like its new "FedExperience."
The government is legendary for its insular hiring practices, but now it's facing a major labor shortage in key skilled positions due to an aging workforce. At the same time, a wave of baby boomer professionals retiring from private-sector positions are looking for second careers - with many seeking positions that allow them to "give back."
