What 4 tips will help mature job seekers land the job they want?

Tips for Mature Job Seekers with Tracy Davidson:

On NBC-10 Consumer Watch, ask any mature job seeker and they will tell you that there is age discrimination. So the question is – how to battle it and get the position you want. A career expert offers four tips to help mature job seekers land that job.

Number one: show them that you have energy.

Ford R. Myers:

You want to come across as someone who has a lot of energy and vitality, someone who can “hit the ground running” and get a lot done. You want to be known as “the get it done person” and “the go-to person.” That’s very important for a candidate who’s a more mature worker.

Tracy Davidson:

Number two: focus on your personal image.

You want to look current. This includes clothes, hair, make-up, everything.

Number three: get current with your technology skills; just what you need to know in your business.

Ford R. Myers:

If you can, take an extra class or a certification in technology. Go to an evening program or get your teenager to teach it to you. Somehow you’ve got to get up-to-speed with the technology that’s relevant to your business, your niche, and your industry.

Tracy Davidson:

And finally, number four: don’t hold-out for a full-time job with benefits.

Whether it’s temp work, part-time, a contract position, or consulting, get your foot in the door and show the employer what you’ve got. Good luck!
