Job Search Websites Cater to Older Workers

Posted By Alejandra Owens On February 9, 2009 @ 5:05 pm In Industrial Revolution | No Comments

This is great. The Columbus Dispatch has a feature [1]that talks about the struggle older people have finding jobs during this recession, and offers a ton of sites that specifically cater to older folks trying to find work. RetiredBrains.com is one of them, which gives these tips:

  • Register with temp companies. “They don’t care about age but are more interested in your skills and experience,” Koff says.
  • Practice your interview. You might not have had a job interview in quite a while, so do a practice interview with an employer you’re not that interested in working for.
  • Rework the resume. Don’t hide your age. Emphasize accomplishments, experience and the currency of your skills.

And these are just a few of many. Check out the sites provided [1]in the article for more info as well as AARP’s job-posting board [2]and their list of online job resources.
