This is great. The Columbus Dispatch has a feature 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.
