by Kaitlyn McInnis at theladders.com
While it’s completely unfair, ageism can be unfortunately quite difficult to combat in hiring, largely thanks to unfounded stereotypes that have been perpetuated about older workers.
That being said, job seekers over 50 who are looking for a new career or position are not at all out of luck—especially if you’re looking in fields and sectors that value a lifetime of experience… exactly which job fields actively seek applicants above the age of 50.
What If I Don’t Have a Professional Network?
by Marcelle Yeager at careervalet.com
You may think you don't have a strong professional network, but there are always opportunities to grow your connections.
Ask who your colleague or friend can introduce you to. Take action. Statistically, the majority of people find positions by connecting with others.
The most successful job searches are those where someone has reached out to connect with others.
Pass it Along
If you attend networking events and go to jobs clubs, you’ve been meeting other job seekers just like you. Mention the Nifty50s to them and encourage them to visit as well. You’ll be helping them and you’ll make an appreciative friend for yourself.
