It's OK to be the "old" one
This mess is really hitting those over 50. Bam!

We older types need to believe in ourselves—but not in a “In my day, sonny” way.
You need to come across as energetic.
You need to do some social networking—think of it as “typing coffee hours.”
You need to be confident.
Update your look. Get a haircut. Maybe have your makeup done at the store, if you’re a woman. No sweaters with leather buttons.
Don’t say too much. Don’t put every little thing on your resume Stay within 15 years.
And just be nice. Be fun to work with. Don’t be a know-it-all, dazed, or a rambling rose talking about everything and nothing.
