Boomers Face a New Kind of Job Market

Boomers Face a New Kind of Job Market

Several of my fellow boomer friends are actively seeking new positions and have asked for advice since I have done executive searches. In each case, the first thing I tell them is, they need to think differently about the employment marketplace they will be facing. Although issues related to a candidate’s age and level of experience in a “younger market” are not legally to be considered, anyone who has been engaged in a search process knows that these are hidden, yet significant, factors they will have to deal with.

So here are a few tips I offer:

  • First, be ready to tell “your story,” which cannot be a litany of jobs or accomplishments. People want to know who you are. Your story will require lots of advance attention and practice and is not an “off the cuff” matter.
