Transitioning from one career to another is always a challenge no matter who you are and no matter what your skill set. One of the biggest challenges is having little to no experience. How can you get experience when you need experience to get experience?
Many mature employees, age 50 or older, approach the job search with a defeated attitude. Prejudice against older workers can still be a factor in the market and workers over 50 should be prepared to convince prospective employers that they aren’t too old to learn new things and they have the energy to work as hard as people in their 20s. Companies are looking for workers who can easily adapt to change, have current skills, learn new things and are technology savvy.
Are you considering a career change, looking for a new job, or interested in expanding your professional network?
