The state of the economy has pushed back retirement for many in the job market. After working one job for many years, renewing the search may make a job seeker feel like a duck out of water. According to government statistics, job seekers over 50 encounter notably longer unemployment than their younger counterparts, but these statistics do not have to apply to you! There are employers out there that not only will hire you, they are looking for you. The key is to find them and sell them on your skills. In Over 50 and Motivated , Brian Howard offers a systematic approach for conducting a job search based on years of frontline recruiting experience, offering tips for combating age bias, getting job offers, and landing your next fulfilling position.

Lots of great information and advice here for the over-50 job-seeking crowd. However, I have two caveats:

1. It's American. For Canadians like me, most of the advice is fine but some references, information, and advice are strictly for American audiences. They just don't apply up here north of the 49th parallel.

2. Needs editing. While there are a handful of links to job-seeker sites, several of them are dead links. The sites are gone, come up error 404, or have some other problem. That's not helpful and quite surprising for a newly-released book. Also, headings are in bold which is quite normal. However, many headings are not - as in missed getting bolded - plus those often also include formatting problems with the affiliated text. None are deal breakers but it does suggest a certain sloppiness on the part of the publisher.

Good luck to you on your job search. Wish me luck in mine (hit the like button for this post).
