Time Has Come Today
Older job seekers tend to be more time conscious than younger generations
➔ There is actual scientific data that shows that older job workers are more conscientious when it comes to arriving at work on time and putting in a full eight-hour workday. According to the Bureau of Business Management, 97 percent of employers find older workers “reliable.”
Maybe it’s because – in the backs of their minds – older workers appreciate the scarcity of time and make every effort to make the most of it – on the job and in their personal lives.
Can time be your friend?
The concept of time rings true for the older job seeker. By being conscientious, older job seekers are more likely to spend more time on their job searches which invariably leads to more interviews and more job offers. You’re more likely to recognize the time-honored tradition of greater return on greater investment of time in a job search.
Also, as an older candidate, you’ve most likely put in more time on the job than anyone else. You’ve got decades of work experience and your experience is very likely spread over multiple employers in multiple capacities. That kind of experience is highly valued by countless employers.
Maybe the time has come for you to take the time realize that time can be a job seeker’s friend. And, for older workers, they need all the help that they can get.
