After 31 years with Hewlett-Packard, Gordon Nuttall was just one year shy of earning full retirement benefits when he was laid off in October 2008. “It was a bit of a surprise,” says Nuttall, who’d worked as a software program manager. “And management wasn’t willing to make an exception for me.”Not ready to retreat from the workforce anyway, Nuttall began searching for a position like the one he’d had. What he found was a saturated job market. “Because I was networking so much, I could see there was a wealth of talent available — people who were downsized or had decided against retirement because their 401(k) had shrunk to a 201(k),” he says.
