3 Tips to Age-Proof Your Job Search


A job search strategy to age-proof your job search should include these three tips:

  1. Use Newer Format Resume
    • MS Word, Google Docs offer fresh, new resume formats that can be visually appealing and that may differentiate your print resume from others.  Consider having business cards with similar fonts and logos too.
  2. Anticipate Age-Related Questions
    • Job interviews are likely to have questions about an older worker that can include birth date, graduation date, or other age-affiliated questions.  Be prepared to effectively answer these questions.
  3. Demonstrate Your Soft-Skills
    • Effective follow-up
    • Dependability
    • Effective people communication skills
