Older but better
Kristin Weisell, AZ Republic, Dec 14, 2011, says older people need to be “strategic” about what they list on their resumes. Limit yourself to the last 10 years. All the jobs and credits make it too long and make you look too…well traveled, shall we say.
Be selective—zero in on jobs you really want and research them like mad.
Show you are tech savvy, a fast learner.
People over 50 usually don’t have to get to preschool to pick kids up and are more flexible.
Also—and I totally believe this—older people are funnier, can hold a conversation, have material to talk about, and are dedicated to working.
They may not even text!
