I have created a program, Career Reno to help you get the job you want. Career Reno is a way of sharing my experience with many people at once, after years of helping older workers to make career transitions.
Too many older workers are unsuccessful in their attempts to get a new job or find work when they are unemployed. They submit resumes that do not represent what they can contribute. When they don’t get the jobs they apply for a negative cycle commences. It affects their self esteem and confidence. Age discrimination is blamed, rather than recognising that their job search strategies are contributing to the problem.
I looked at the comments posted on older workers’ Facebook pages, and saw the same pattern repeated.
