A colleague recently sent me an article
from the Christian Science Monitor about job readiness for the over 50 crowd. As everyone knows, there are formidable numbers of boomers in America--some of whom may never have written a résumé or formally applied for jobs for decades, if ever.
Second half of life transitions and increased desires to find work that makes a difference, are prompting more and more AARP
members to dust off old résumés and bring them up to date in terms of how they look and what they say.
If you are someone who needs to give your résumé an overhaul, or create one from scratch, the task may be daunting. However, taking one step can move the process forward significantly. You might begin by reading the CSM article and then taking a look at the blogs I've written under the category "resumes and interviewing" in my blog archives.
You are likely to be surprised by how much you've done in your career and how impressive your new résumé looks!
